Original Ride Height

Just been ringing around trying to get insurance for my car and I need to know what the original ride height was, so I know how much its been lowered.

Anyone know?

And where is the measurement taken from?

Thanks.

Re: Original Ride Height

where have you measured that from? the top of the tyre?

I think that would be a bit inaccurate due to tyre wear, could you measure it from the centre of the wheel to the whel arch?
