Question 00RS Ride Height???

What is the stock ride height for a 2000 RS?

The reason I ask is that another RS parked beside me at the mall earlier and I easily noticed my car was lower than the other.

I believe my car has stock springs although I did purchase the car usesed.

The ride height is usually measured from the center of the hub to the lip of the fender.

This is too weird for me to understand why my car would be lower than another RS.

If anyone has the ride height for a 00RS it would be appreciated if you could pass it on.

Thanks a bunch!!!

Do you have stock wheels and tires?

maybe there tires had bigger sidewalls which makes yours look a little lower

your shocks and springs probably have more miles on them.

i know it sounds simple but how much stuff do you have in the car? weight in the car will make it seem lower even with the stock suspension.

Exclamation just an idea

The shocks could be shot. If it was me, be replacing the every 2 years/30k miles or so. It make a bigger difference than most would think. Good time to upgrade.
