What are the measurements from underside of running boards to ground, just behind front and just in front of back wheels? My M5 is at something like 7 3/4 front, 8 1/2" rear. Stock rake (difference between back and front) is 3/4" on all E28s afaik, back higher. Mine used to be even (level) but it looks/rides/handles much better with the slight forward tilt.


How low should the car be sitting? Springs were used so mileage is unknown but paint on the springs was still in reasonable shape. Adjustable sways bars installed at the same time.
