Stock. Looks exactly like mine. A local Indy shop just asked me if my car was lowered about 30 minutes ago.

Can you guys give me an opinion if this is stock or not? I posted another thread about getting some brake shield rubbing noise while hard cornering. I really wasn't sure if this height is stock or not and it could possibly help me diagnose the issue.

Hard to tell from that zoomed in angle compared to how the whole car sits, but it does look a little lowered to me. I'd also check to see what color your springs are as that'll be a good indicator or help indicate it pretty quickly. Stock springs will be black, and while some aftermarket lowering ones are, too, many lowering springs will be a different color like red (H&R?), blue (cobb/dinan), yellow (bmw performance), think some swift ones are blue or orange, etc.

I'll check out the springs when I get home. Here is a more full picture if that helps.
