Mean Streak Rear Suspension Height

Hi everyone,

I believe I have found the information, but I would like to see if I could get confirmation from others more knowledgeable than me.

I just got a 2007 Mean Streak special edition and it had some rear soft bags. After I removed them to see how everything looked, I saw that the bags had rubbed against the rear shocks for quite a while.

I'm thinking of replacing them with Progressive Suspension 412's (I can powder coat stuff black), but I think that I found the stock height is 13.5 inches. Is this correct? I was thinking of dropping the rear 0.5" or 1.0". But I want to make sure I got everything correct before I order something.

Thanks for any info!

JT
