This Page Exists To Answer The Question...

When building your Mustang, one of the most important aspects in the way it looks is the ride height.  The following pictures show different Mustang stances and explain what components are required to get that stance.  Tire size also comes into play in getting "the look", so whenever possible the tire size is also listed.

For consistency, regardless of tire size, ride height is defined as the vertical distance from the center of the wheel to the fender opening lip.
