Need someone to measure stock ride height in the front for me

Can someone please measure from a level surface the height of the front fender well to the ground, right where the curve of the fender becomes a point?

Thanks for the help. I am trying to adjust the ride height for stock class and think i am still a little high.

I recall there was a post asking 1M owners to measure from center of front wheel to bottom of front fender, and there were many different measurements.

I measured 25 1/2 inches if you are referencing the lowest point of the front fender near where it meets the front bumper.

Dude, pay attention: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=705182
If anyone wants to post their measurements on that thread I started or here, please do. I'd still be interested in variances. Your 1M must still be stock/OEM shocks.

"i am still a little high?" Umm the jokes write themselves.

Many thanks!

FWIW, my rears match that measurement to the car next door. I will not discuss the front numbers.

I will have to measure where all my stuff is at the moment. The lower the better but I am still sorting the setup.
