only 0.375 inch different, so only 1cm higher than the rear, i think it shall be more as the fender at the front is much bigger than the rear.

bro i think the measure is not right, because i remember before i lowered my ride i can put 3 fingers at the front and max 1 finger at the rear, and a different of 2 fingers is at lease 3cm which is 1.18'' and you only have 0.375 inch, would you do it again please mate.

okay thanks bro, please try another way if you can, can you measure from ground to the beginning of the side skirt and then again the end of the side skirts to see if they are same height, so that i know what i need to adjust to my ride, thanks mate.
