Easiest way...look at the sticker in the back of the car...or...look for a spoiler on a SH...or...open the door..and if there is a light on the side of the door..it's an SH.

On my way up to New Jersey.. I was driving thru Delaware and this teenage girl was driving a bluish silver 5th gen.

It had an SH decal, painted sills and had that subtle front end drop like an SH but her wheels were BASE rims!! Thats so weird... I wonder if she knows she has base wheels.. haha. strange. It was an genuine SH with base wheels. It was interesting watching that car dip out when the light turned green. I couldnt keep up I was driving an automatic 318 thats slow as krap.

You can measure the cam lobes.....

Vabeach--
There is no front end drop on an SH. Slightly stiffer springs than the base, but same ride height.

lol. measure the cam lobes.

actually, i think the SH may sit slightly lower for some reason. my car's suspension is totally stock, yet whenever i park next to another lude it seems a bit lower... a tiny amount. it also seems like it's gotten lower over time, so maybe it's just my big white ass.

in this pic it looks like the front end is slightly lower than the rear... judging by the wheel relative to the wheel well. of course, it's on a hill and the wheel is turned.

Maybe the stock SH springs tend to sag more over time than either the rears or a base's front and rear, just due to the heavier front end on an SH???

that's possible... although i'm not sure how much sag a 44lb. atts unit could cause.

The SH seems to sit lower since the front is higher than the base and the rear is lower than the base, more of a balance. The Base's butt hangs higher.
