    Your SLS most likely has 225/60/16 tires, and the STS's have either 235/60/16 or 235/55/17. The STS tire size is "slightly" larger than yours. This is what you are noticing. Also, the STS has the electronic struts, and a thicker sway bar. Neither of which will alter the ride height.

    I could never figure out what the difference was, but GM advertised the STS as sitting lower than the SLS.
