AU1 XR6 VCT - King Super lows, 340mm front, 350mm rear
AU2 Forte V8 - king coil overs, 345mm front (but adjustable), 365mm rear (non-adjustable)

I was running at approx 335mm front, but kept scraping my front skirt, even going up driveways at an angle!

Probably got to do with better quality shocks. But what would I know? 36cm is still low - consider that 40cm is probably standard

30 cm up the front, 32 cm at the rear :)

The lowest point to the ground is the exhaust which sits only 6 cm off the ground. She scrapes on absolutely everything... the jack wont fit under it and the exhaust touches the diff if I have more than 3 people in the car... but for the looks its so worth it
