Ride height of F06 with competition package

I am about to order a Quickjack and noticed that the bottom of the front jacking point is only about 3.25 inches off the ground. At the rear it is about 4 inches. The wheel wells are R 27.5 and F 27.25. is this normal height? if not, what is "your" wheel well height.

Since NEW-TIS is off line I do not have access to those measurements.

I have a lowered F13 (with comp pkg) on the KW HAS kit and recently purchased a Quickjack BL-5000EXT. Everything works fine, even lowered. The standard BL-5000 is not long enough for the F13, I had to go with the EXT version.

I intend to get the BL 5000EXT, but was concerned about the statement in the operating instruction that say you cant start the lift from "flat" list position. I am the second owner and was wondering whether the ride height was the normal height or whether the springs have been changed. (i guess I can jack it up and have a look for markings on the springs)

I have had no issues with mine (The Quickjack). I have it lowered pretty low. No rear gap at all and very minimal in the front.
