    I believe that would mean your strut mounts are bad.....

It's pretty common for me to to go to a large goat gathering and see how much various cars have dropped in front or back (yeah it really is that easy to spot when it isn't uniform front to back). ...then tell the owner and have them say, wow I never realized.
    OE ride height is 604mm on 17" rims, 617mm on 18" rims. Measure from the bottom lip of the rim through the center to the painted fender lip. If you measure from the ground, you will pick up a differences in tire presure, tire wear etc. and that can throw off the measurement.
