That looks really good in the rear, more than I got with the Delco air shocks, but then again, I probably have a few hundred pounds of tools & crap in the trunk LOL..
The front may be a tad high, as long as it aligns well, why worry, gives ya more ground clearance! Is the front causing any wobble feelings when turning or?
I will measure my ride & post back the numbers front/rear later tonight. Cheers.

My driver'* side front measures 28" ground to bottom of inside fender in center.
Rear is 27.5" .
Of course tires and springs come into play and looks I could use new rear springs.

Yea u may be right extra ground clearence never hurt anything, and Nope! No wobble feeling at all... Just seems a bit stiffer than before.. But that also may have something to do with the sensa track struts.. Cuz sometimes it can get floaty on the express way lol (And my rear measures 28 - 1/4 and my front measures a bit higher at 28 - 3/4)
