*For the people who found this with Search or by using the FAQ, keep in mind this thread is from late August - early October 2006. Measurements are therefore subject to change.*
I searched.
greyvdub is the only one who ever attempted a thread with actual measurements, but that didn't meet much success.
So I measured the vertical distance between the ground to my front fender, making sure I went straight up through the center of the wheel hub. I prefer this method than measuring from the center of the wheel hub to the fender because imo there's a smaller margin for error.
Not trying to toot my own horn here, I'm low but I know I'm not the lowest. But anyway...just toss up your measurements, and your suspension of choice...maybe a side shot.
As people post up, I'll come back and edit the list...

Honorable Mentions
Insanely low fellas, unfortunately measurements are tough these days because their cars are either sold, totalled, on new suspension, repossessed by the man, at the shop, on fire, or they don't feel like measuring.

mmm mmm sexy

and no, It's ugly as hell, still a wheel gap

I just can't afford wheels I want yet, so i'm sticking with the garbage ones that came with my car... but kinda look like the OPs rims, which is ironic.

But what is this? Winter mode or something.

My previous pictures were winter mode, this is summer mode. See y'all at WF!!!

I'm changing up the suspension....Sorry if my thread came across as arrogant and me saying I'm the lowest I was just comparing my before and after. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Quarters are about 0.950" diameter. That's not too shabby

Measuring to pulled fenders isn't really consistent though.

Very true. Another reason why I didn't want to be added to the "low" thread.

Measure and photograph

I would but i'm back up at school. Speedbumps are too big to keep it that low. I'm from South Florida where the land is perfectly flat so it's no big rolling that low, but i'm in Tampa now (central Florida, USF) and the roads are crap here and the school has the biggest speedbumps in the world. I raised the car to something like 22 threads off the ground (dunno the measurements) and I still scrape sometimes.
I refuse to take pictures of my car with the wheels it has, I absolutely hate them, no pics till it's finished http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Bust out the ruler...who can beat me? (Archie Bunker)

I was at 22-7/8" on 19's. Still waiting for that to be beat... But that 7/8" did not come close to cover the distance from my subframe to the ground.... I call BS until better shots are taken.

Re: Bust out the ruler...who can beat me? (The_Sauce)

Pfft, keep trying...



It's gone a hair lower since these pics were taken too.
Wheels: 19x9
Suspension: Fat chicks in the seats and dead hookers in the trunk.
And a kilo of columbian candy duct taped to the fuel tank.
