Have yet to measure that (not an important number to me), but I will tonight after work...

I originally wasnt going to lower it this much, but thought it really pulled it together nicely, and didnt realize how well the Koni's were going to ride this low...

So I just went out and measured...

Front is just a tad under 23.5'' FTG
Rear is ~23.75'' FTG

To be honest i was not expecting it to sit that low..

To be honest I am not sure, picked them up off another member, if there is a way i can verify from the original box, or markings let me know ill take a look...

So far no noises, ride is shockingly smooth and not bouncy and this is coming from riding PA turnpike every morning with massive amounts of construction...

Im happy I went with Koni's after looking at coils for awhile debating on picking up a set of ST's or find a used set of Koni's (iffy about buying used coils)....glad i went the route i did..

Maybe they are still settling in, but doubt it?

Advise picking up a set of adjustable end links?
