Iv heard the lowest legal height is 100mm at the vehicles lowest point. So if it is above that height you should be fine.

ok thanks some one said to me that it had to be 100mm of the ground and still obtain 3/4 of the factory suspension traval and was just woundering if any one knew if it would pass or not :)

The roadworthy tester will usually go over everything carefully because if they pass a vehicle with a defect and it gets found out then they run the risk of losing their roadworthy testers licence.
