Can anyone tell how much my car has been lowered?

I asked the shop guy what kind of springs I had, when he was changing my oil, and he said Steeda. Said usually it would be a 2.5-3in drop overall due to weight and springs ect. I want to know for sure. Is there anyway u guys can tell if i post pictures. Sorry if some are bad quality. I do know its pretty dang low right now The lowest part is about 3in off the ground. Any stock measurements of ride height would also be helpful. What do u guys think? Thanks!

Google 99-04 Mustang Steeda lowering springs? Doesn't seem too difficult

I assure you it wont be near 3", both judging by your pictures, and assuming its not coilovers

probably like 1.5-2 inches. 3 inch drop is a lot on these cars and you'd probably be close to tucking with 3 inches

The gap between the tire and fender looks like it is similar to mine. I have Steeda sport springs and the front drop was 1.25". You are definitely not dropped more than 1.5".

2" tops. If that much.
I don't like the slammed look personally,too rice. An inch drop and stiffer springs is dead sexy in my book but I'm old and I still think old cars with raised ass ends are cool.
