Default front end

Would anyone please measure your front end ground clearance of there stock height 03 or 04 gt for me.i had a shop replace my front grill and bumper cover after my car was hit while parked and i think they installed the wrong bumper cover and grill.
My old bumper cover covered 100 % of my intercooler,this one does not. And i dont have to angle my car anymore getting out of my office driveway like i use too, because i have more ground clearance.
When i picked it up from the body shop i could shake the bumper up and down by inches nothing supported it underneth.Gt owners or others grab a hold of you front bumber cover and lift up ?does if move by inches?.

Thanks all..........Lt4supr

Too cold and I don't know where my measuring tape is.

I do know that the front bumper extends a bit lower on a turbo than an N/A (naturally aspirated).

I'm assuming that they took an N/A bumper and put it on your car.

It's hard to find OEM bumper covers now, and lots of after market guys are doing them but I have the same problem on an '06, just seems to not fit right...

The ground clearance is a shade less than 7" at the front of the Facia. The covering should also be very secure to the vehicle.
