Has my car been lowered

I bought this car used. Does it look like its standard ride height.? Coming from a gen 4 car this one seems very close to the ground. I love it, I've had no issues with it dragging. I'm just trying to figure out if this is stock how can some guys go down another 1 1/2 inches?

just eye balling the wheel gap looks reduced... I say yes. look at your springs... what color are they??

looks like lots changed... drilled rotors, red calipers, ZL1/1LE wheels... so I wouldn't be surprised it's lowered

Definitely lowered. Get under it and see if you see red springs. I'm guessing by your car's color the previous owner likely went with red springs. Looks good though!

lol, not all lowering springs are red. Hotchkis sports gray. Its not about color so much when it comes to what springs you should get... its performance, stance/ride height etc.

OP, looks good... definitely lowered. Get coil-overs if you want to go lower.

It is tough to tell from that angle and the tire shine. To me it looks normal to me. Here is a picture of rear and a side view. I did not lower mine.

I just measured the clearance from the ground to the bottom of the car and it is 6 inches and from the top of the rear tire to the bottom of the fender well is 1 1/2 inches. I have 275/40/20's on the rear. Could it be possible that the OP has larger rims and or tires on to give it a lowered look? Hope this helps.

Here's mine before I lowered it. There should definitely be more wheel gap. Crazy to think it's not lowered. Watch out for those parking blocks or you'll be sorry.
