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.
