Hey all, question for you. What is the factory ride height for our 181's? My suspension has sagged quite a bit. Specifically, what would the stock ground clearance be right underneath the rocker panels?

Thanks as always!

I make it 12 1/2 inches with 195/75R14 tires 25.8 inches in diameter.

Thanks for the info, mondshine. My car is sitting at 9-1/2" right now, with 15" wheels, so I need to lift it up 4" to get it back to standard.
