Icon5 5th Gen Ride Height

Hello all. This is my first post, so take it easy on me.

I'm going to test drive a 98 Prelude tomorrow (it'll be my first if I take it). I looked at it today, and it seemed to be lowered. Can anyone give me the stock ride height for the 5th gens? Maybe someone could just measure their's if they have a stock suspension. Anything to look for in general, or in the suspension? The car looks pretty clean, nice paint, ect. It's got 115k on it, so I think it should last me a while. BTW, it's at a dealer. Thanks in advance.

PS Yes, I searched, but didn't find much.

LOL. Thanks for the reply, but I was looking for something a little less subjectable (IE inches, mm, etc).

Re: 5th Gen Ride Height

That's about the best description mate. As a general rule with the fifth gens, if it looks like it's been lowered then it probably has.

Re: 5th Gen Ride Height

If you click the link in his sig you get

Suspension:
Tien Basic Coilovers
Megan Strut Bar 3 Piece Set
S2000 Rims
So the pic in his sig isn't meant to be stock height
