General Rule of Thumb is 100mm but different cars vary so it's best to check with transport SA

Brow height should be 355mm at the rear and 345mm at the front as well as a minimum of 100mm clearance between the road and any part of the car.

 

Brow height is the measurement from the centre of the wheel to the top most part of of the fender arch.

I've lowered mine as low as they go on Tein Super Streets and have been dailying it like so since I put them in couple months ago. IF I get defected at least it was because I was driving my car the way I wanted to. Not half low/half high and still defect you for too low. Funny thing is my car doesn't even look that low. But Tein's are wound down as far as possible (except helper springs)

Meh. Ran car low. Scraped on everything and was generally a pain in the arse to use as a daily. Got defected. Raised one inch and now no more scrapes but I've still been pulled over and warned about the height. Screw going to regency every couple of months and having a car thats shit to drive for the sake of being a cool kid.

Yep only couple ways to get into Tea Tree Plaza for me. And I park in certain areas because went over a speed bump and the front pipe hit it bad lol. And too much traffic sometimes to do the whole 'attacking it from the side' game lol. I call it Straddling Speed Bumps lol

 

Nah once I get defected stock suspension goes in and stays in until other things on my car are done and modded. Until then, Meh.

Not sure but shouldn't the brow height be higher at the front?

yeah I think he means the other way around.

 

Having fiberglass guards now mine is 310 at the rear and 330 at the front.

 

I believe every car has different standards
