Default replacement front coil spring problem

hi folks, i'm new to this forum but would appreciate any helpful advice you could give. i own a 52 plate Peugeot 206 1.4 hdi and have recently replaced a few bits and bobs for it's m.o.t. the problem i'm having is with the after market front suspension coil springs i fitted, THERE JUST NOT RIGHT. apart from the fact the front end is pointing at the sky the whole geometry of the suspension and steering is off and it's damaging the front tyres at quite an alarming rate. i spoke to the supplier 3 times and got them to check the part code and 3 times they said that they are the correct springs for the car. i would be grateful if anyone could suggest a decent after market spring that will help me get my pug back to normal or are the genuine Peugeot springs the only way to sort it out. ?

Assuming that the springs are correctly fitted, If it's possible, take the car to the suppliers to show them what they are doing to the car and ask them to explain exactly how the springs are correct

the springs were fitted correctly. as for taking it to the suppliers i did offer to do this but was told that they are not mechanics, they merely supply parts and that it was company policy not to comment on any vehicle.
