Ok, here is some input:

You don't have a manual?
Did you GTS or check YouTube or?
Why were you OK with no gap to begin with?
Did you think to ask the shop to explain how everything works to you?
Have you checked with Tein?

Most coilovers for this generation Accord offer adjustable dampening and height. The bottom collar of your coilover should be responsible for the ride height on your vehicle. Unfortunately, it is strongly recommended these adjustments are made with the part taken off the car, or at least with a few parts loosened to prevent damage to the strut or inner rod. Since you did not install these coilovers yourself it sounds like you may have to take a trip back to the shop for them to correct this. Another option is rolling fenders if you're having rubbing issues but want to maintain a similar ride height that you are at now.

Simply Youtube your coilover model and you will see how the bottom collar can be adjusted for ride height and see if you want to take that project on in your own garage or not.

Just loose the the collar from spring and turn to the left to go up I say like 1/2” and then tighten I don’t think you have to adjust the shock since it’s not much
