5th gen stock height/clearance?

When I bought my car it had already been lowered on some Eibach springs and I have problems scrapping in certain parts of town. I got some adjustable coilovers and would like to bring it back to stock clearance before I decide how low I want it, the only problem being I don't know what that is and I don't know where it's measured from. Can someone help me out here?

Do you know what Eibach springs you have? IF you know that you can work out what drop you have. It's the perfect one from looking at your sig, looks like 1.5-2 inches.

Height is measured from the lowest point of the car to the ground, and what they call "eyebrow height" is from centreline of hub to the arch comes around the wheel.

Do you have the 1.3 inch drop eibach springs? You shouldnt be scraping around town with a 1.3 in drop. I have a 1.5 drop and never had any problems I even considered getting lower springs something like Si Speeds height. But I dunno maybe eibach made a different line who knows

you have to be at least 2'' drop if your scraping. unless you have bad struts, then all estimates are out the window.

I have a 2" drop on mine, and I only scrape on large speed bumps, but since I know where those are, I just avoid them. And if I find myself in the predicament of a steep driveway or entrance, If you take it at an angle, I have noticed that actually helps me out a little bit. Still scraps, but not as bad. I would NEVER return mine to stock riding height, the height in your pic looks awesome, it's probably a 1.3" - 1.7" drop, somewhere around that, and that is perfect!
