Can't be far away from standard height at that dude, slightly lower if anything!

Here is a pic of mine at standard height with 18" wheels in comparison to yours

This is with stock suspension fitted

Hope it helps !

would lower the rear end another inch definatly as it would upset the balance of the car and cause some understeer and lift off oversteer front looks ok, get some close ups so can see the gap easier
