2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, Need stock fender height measurements in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; Can a few of you guys with stock suspension measure your ground to fender height through the center of the ...
Edmund's front to back measurements are very similar..i thought the difference would be more, I attempted to mimick them with a 26 3/8 front and 26 1/2 rear, but the rake just doesn't seem the same as stock. Maybe it's an illusion because the front fender is so much closer to the tire. Our crappy steering rack coupled with the mack truck ratio and granny sized wheel doesn't compliment a lowered car either... Gonna bring her back up some.
I don't mind the stock front height, just can't stand how high the rear is, and a lower rear just doesn't look right. I think our rear fender should have been a tad deeper.., same height, just about an inch more fender... Kinda like our bavarian cousin.
I'm going to put it at 26 3/4 front and 26 7/8 rear and see if my ocd will subside.
I will say, when lowered to about 26" all around, the car will devour the freeway. If I lived in a remote area I'd be inclined to use 5th gear to the fullest.
