Arrow Ride Height Figures needed! Please help

Need Rallye owners help here for a new Rallye suspension page I am currently updating.

ok, this only applies to people who have STANDARD SUSPENSION

What I need is the front and rear ride heights off you, so I can build up an average figure that is more accurate than just one figure if you see what I mean.

Here's what to do....

1) park your car on as flat ground as possible
2) get a tape measure or big ruler
3) Measure the distance from the centre of the centre cap/hub to the bottom of the wheel arch.
4) Measure this distance in cm.
5) Make sure the wheel arch is directly horizontal on your eye line, ie: your not looking down or up at the ruler
6) Email or post your results here!!

Thanks guys!

if you do it the Mark-way, the size of the tyres/wheels will not influence the measurement

Great thread, it helped me to see how lower my car was... Also, this measuring way is nice, as Sidney told, because your tires will not influence the measuring.
