    How much have I lowered my car

    Are there any standard height dimensions I could look at to compare my car with.

    I lowered my car pretty much by eye but I'd like to know how much lower than standard it is and i'm not going to put my original gear on to compare .

    Can anyone help me? Maybe if someone has standard suspension and can take some measurements from somewhere?

    Any pics of your car? It may help us determin.

    Easy way of measuring for sure is measure a standard G from floor to wing mirror. Then measure yours. Difference = your drop.
    Its a jam thing

    the rear looks about 40-45 whereas the front looks like a nice 55

    all based on standard so gotta factor for the so called 20mm drop if it had this as standard
