I want the distance from the floor to the top/inner of the wheel arches

mines too low at 23"

keep hitting speed humps

2013 greenline (15mm lower than standard superbs)

some are 28"!

Why not go to the dealers with a tape measure?

From ground to the top of the inside wheel arch liner mine is 28.5" front and 28" rear....and the rears just had new Springs fitted so I guess they'll be spot on.

I read on Briskoda that the height difference is 30mm lower on a greenliner (1" and 3/16ths)

Ps....Should have mentioned mines is a 4x4 Superb estate so I'm not sure if that heightens it, it's certainly not raised like the Skoda Octavia Scouts were.

what did that cost?

the rears are a simple DIY job but the fronts are coilovers?

just read that the rear coils have a rubber pad top and bottom, wondering if mine "just have left the building"

Can't be precise as had a rear Caliper fitted at same time, but £62 per Spring and 1.5 hours of labour at £46 per hour worked at around £230.00 for the Springs Including fitting and Vat.

Greenline is defined as "sports suspension"
