78 Alfetta sedan-Euro ride height?

Can anyone give me measurements from ground to jacking points or tops of fender wells? Need to lower mine a bit.
Thanks in advance,
Jeff Lang

Best to measure from center of wheel cap to fender lip. That way different size tires don't muddy the waters.

Geez. You backwoods rednecks from Arizona.............

I got my muffler from Amazon on Saturday. Hang loose on calling Bill for the exhaust work. I have an alternative.

So, where did you get your measurement anyway? How do you rate?

Nobody ever answered my call for a Euro or USA steel bumper Spider height measurement from the center of the wheel caps to top of the wheel well.......

All I got was the Encyclopedia Adnauseum of some decades old tech crap that was very inconsistent.
