Calling E90s: eibach ride height

I'm looking for the true ride height of an e90 on eibach springs and EDC shocks.

If you don't mind, can someone please measure their car front/rear, centerhub to fender on a flat surface? as shown below:


Curious to see how eibachs truly measure out compared to my swift springs.

I'm saying that a taller/shorter tire or larger/smaller rim will give a different measurement.

Yourself as well as whomever has eibach's will need to post their wheel and tire sizes if you want an accurate comparison.

I'm still not understanding...

If I were measuring fender to ground, than yes, wheel/tire combo would definitely have to be factored in.

I'm measuring from fender to centerhub, which is essentially measuring the spring height.

+1

Center of hub to fender should be relative to suspension only... not wheels/tires
