Stock suspension measurement help needed

I have a 2002 Boxster S. I unfortunately took the suspension apart without measuring the stock height. I have coil overs and want to set them for 1.5 inch drop but cannot without a baseline.

Could someone with a bone stock Boxster S with stock 17 inch wheels/tires please measure from the fender lip to the ground front and rear.

Thanks!

look up "spring choice USm030 vs row vs hr" posted by me (johnsjmc) several weeks ago Someone posted in that thread the factory height measurements .(post 15) The factory ride height mesurements are taken from suspension mounting bolt points and is much more accurate than fender gap. I don,t know how to link to it.
