you can see in the MSP pic that the rear wheel is tucked into the wheel well...the u bolt nuts and the sway bar links would hit the floor...thats how low it sat...it sits almost 9" higher now than it did...when she got it it was the same height as her pontiac sunfire and i could rest my chin on the roof of it
