Unfortunately, the height seems to vary from car to car.

Many people have been happy with lows in the back and front and others find the rear still sits up way to high and need to put in s/lows.

In my Sedan I had s/lows in the front and back, and found the rear was then too low, and raised the rear with some 10mm spacers.

A lot of it is personal choice, and making a compromise between how it looks, drives and functional ground clearance.

This is what the spacers look like.

Basically just a ring that sits on top of the coil spring. They can be acquired in different thicknesses.
