Its realy hard to tell from the pics, could just be your tire is filling the gap more.

Even though you may have the same size as others some brands look wider and sidewalls are thicker.

Or the previous owner and his family were all seriously overweight.

That looks like stock ride height to me, and yes I'd go lower.

Looks like stock. For reference, here's mine with the H&R springs, and stock struts. Stock tire size as well. IMO, the H&R's are probably the first step in lowering if you don't want coilovers. The car only went down about 1-1.5".

need pics on level ground. i believe you are on a slant? looks a little lower than stock imo. i look at mine everyday and when i saw yours it def looks a tad lower. good looking. kinda what im after. the rear is def modded one way or another cuz the stock slant is gone. h&r springs look a little too low for me but look does look slick. to each there own.
