Without doing the math, less than 1/2 inch. It's the wheel base (108"?) to 2" as compared to (the distance of front wheel CL to the bumper) to the amount of height raised.

If the wheel CL/bumper is less than 27", then raised height is less than 1/2"?

I lowered rear only - think it was 2". Pretty much got rid of "butt in the air" rake. The front did go up a tad, I noticed headlights reach further, but it passed inspection where they check aim of headlights, so it can't be much.
