Hello all. When i bought the car i was told it was lowered but i have no idea how much it was lowered. It does not appear to have cut springs as it looks like an actual lowering kit. I love the height of the rear of the car. But as you can see in the pictures, the front is about an inch or two higher than the rear. I was just curious to see what other peoples lowered fieros looked like and how much it was lowered. I have tried finding the stock ride height to no avail.

I have not taken measurements yet. But i will just after i post this new topic to compare actual ride heights.

Ok so i got some actual measurments.


From the ground the the top of the wheel arch

Front 27.8 inches

Rear 26.1 inches

I would measure the front at the crossmember but i cant get under it far enough to measure accurately.

Measure it from the center of the wheel to the top of the wheel arch, otherwise you'll only be able to compare to other people with exactly the same tire size.

Thanks good idea. Even though i have the stock 205 on front and 215 rear i think.

But the measurements are 15.6 ish inches on front and just under 14 on rear.

The service manual states that regardless which stock wheel and tire combo you have, the distance from the ground to the underside of the rocker panel should be as follows:

193 mm (7.6") high at a location 500 mm (19.7") behind the centerline of the front wheel; and

186 mm (7.3") high at a location 573 mm (22.5") ahead of the centerline of the rear wheel.

You can also measure to the roof - 48" IIRC. Need a long level though.
