How to tell if a car's been raised... (yeah, odd, I know)

The front of my ZH has been lowered - I know that much. But the back certainly hasn't - no lowering blocks present and frankly, with a fist-sized gap between the top of the rear wheel and the wheelarch... well, it's just not lowered...

Which led me to wonder, has it been raised? I don;'t know why anyone would want to do this, unless they liked the funny-car look. Here are a couple of pics I took this morning:

Can you tell anything from these pictures? I'm no suspension expert, so couldn't possibly say one thing of the other. Does it look normal? One thing I can say for certain is that the rear end of the car is immensley firm, although that could be the shocks to blame for that one.

Has it ever been on gas? Thats about the only reason i can think of that someone might actually raise it.
