Axle looks twisted to the rear.

Installed eibach sport line springs about 1000 miles ago. And yesterday I was parked uneven in a parking lot, not too bad and my rear passenger side was bottomed out. Then when I moved it it was normal again, not sure if that means anything. Also I bottomed out 3 times the past week or so wich hasn't happened before. And the rubber stoppers on the rear axle aren't up and down the lean to the rear alittle. Is this all normal and it's all in my head? Or is there something wrong.

Not a good idea to put higher rate lowering springs on ****ty stock dampers than can barely control the stock springs. I'm not surprised it's bottoming now that the springs have settled a bit. You do need to replace the bump stops with something lower or cut the stock ones down an bit.

...and get some real shocks will ya?

Shocks, struts, and springs all need to be replaced / upgraded together (if they are stock). As @5LHO mentioned, the stock setup is garbage, even worse if paired with aggressive aftermarket parts.

As far as the uneven look goes when parked, regardless of your stated suspension setup, not all ground is actually even, giving the impression that your car's suspension may be out of alignment / imbalanced. A slope of marginal amounts can make your car look skewed and appear even worse when viewing from certain angles. Not something I would really worry about unless we are talking inches of difference when parked on what appears to be a generally flat surface. If that's the case, you have a suspension problem - time for more upgrades.

looks normal, my bumpers looks like that with stock spring and shock, if axels twisted you can tell by the way springs are seated.

Since you have Sportlines I assume you received the shortened bump stops with the springs???
I installed Sportlines in my 14 with less than 3000 miles and never had it bottom out once...also ran stock shocks and struts for over 7000 with no issues.
Yes, changing shocks and struts along with strut mounts would give a better ride it's not totally necessary....depending on how many miles you have on the stock ones of course.
