Default Height (Spring) Survey

We get a lot of questions about actual height of various spring combinations, so I thought I'd start a thread to document heights.

We need to know the measurements shown below from ground -> hub and to ground -> fender lip in order to figure out where various combinations of model & spring will sit. It's really the difference that counts in evaluating where the springs make you sit, so do the subtraction if you like. Measure just to the bottom of the sheet metal for the Fender lip and do your best to get hub center right. Accuracy within 1/8" would be good for us.

What model and MY is important along with age since springs tend to drop... especially new installs. If you actually have info like Saab spring color codes feel free to add that or any other details in you think are important. Those who cut coils obviously need to add that in. Add a side photo if you want. Tire specs might help with understanding any funky ground to hub measurements.

I'll add my own info in the post following this. Put your rough vehicle specs in the subject to make it easy to search the thread. Here's the diagram:
