It would be very interesting, if you measured the distance from the bottom of the rocker, both sides, at front of rocker and back of rocker.   That would give us a good comparison to 'spec'... ?  make sure you're on a good level surface to get the best measures with the tires properly inflated.

Here's a shot of my car never been touched height. Looks close to James car height.

take a photo on the same plane as the top of the front tire, or do some measurements from the top of the tire to the top lip of the fender.  Yours looks closer to 'factory' Z28 than James, but the perspective of your photo makes that hard to see.

I'd like to see the height on one which sat unsprung for the last 40 years vs sitting with the suspension compressed.

measure your rocker height and compare to Chevrolet's spec (from the AIM), and let us know...?

Here are the only pics I have of my first 69 Z. This was 1975.
