Question 240 Stock Ride Height Measurement?

Sorry if this has been answered, couldn't find a answer, but how does one measure and what is the stock ride height of a 240 sedan? I would like to measure before lowering. Thanks

It doesn't matter. Measure it however you want and do it the same way after you lower.

However, people usually measure either the gap between the bottom of the wheel opening and the top of the tire or the bottom of the wheel opening to the ground.

in the days of old, the trolls would destroy these beauties just because wanted that lowered look.
now they want metrics to quantify their abuse.

Mine measure 19" from the ground, when up high enough to slip the bell housing out on top of a transmission jack.
