    height: ground to fender

    does anyone know the normal height for a 4th gen Ws6 ground to fender with the stock 17" rims and eagle f1gs tires? just wondering cause im not sure if my car was already lowered before i bought it but it does sit pretty low compared to some others ive seen. the measurements now are:

    Front drivers side: 26"
    Front passenger side: 26"
    Rear driver side: 28"
    Rear passenger side: 27"

    just went out and checked
    26 1/4 front dr
    27 1/2 rear dr
    26 front pass
    27 1/4 rear pass
    and as far as I know this car hasn't been lowered but like you I've always thought it seemed lower than some others I've seen

    27.25" to 27.75" is about average, in the front.

    Does this mean we get to say our cars are lowered?

    Can you take a picture of the springs(just jack the car up on one side until then wheel is at full droop)?

    ill see if i have some time to do that tomorrow. its just a normal looking black spring but the shock on the inside is yellow. not sure wat kinda shock that is. the rear shocks on my car are black and say something like Sensatrack on them. never heard of that before. whoever last owned the car musta put those on there and the yellow ones on the front since i thought stock shocks were de carbon.
