Re: Grounding 156
The ride hieght of a car varies on so many things that a set figure CAN NOT be placed on it.
Things that affect the ride hieght:
Tyre tread wear / inflation.
Trim level / equipment wieght (the spec).
Fuel, oil and other liquid quantities wieght.
Suspension pack fitted.
Wear in the bushes on the suspension.
Ageing springs/dampers/spirng boots.
Sportswagon or Saloon.
WIEGHT OF THE DRIVER/PASSENGERS/LOAD.
To be honest I don't think you car has a problem, and it certainly isn't grinding its way through the precats, probably the flexijoint if the engines droped, but most people bin the undertray, they deform from the heat and bow down and rub, they serve no purpose and only hide oil leaks to keep your drive clean. But do make sure the engine mounts haven't sunk, especially the front right one, you should be able to get your hand comfortably down the side of the engine, if you can't then it's going to be £30 to replace the mount.
