What is the standard height of a 2003 Base coupe?

Just bought a 2003 Base for my daughter. It has 100K miles, but is in decent shape. I think it's been lowered (muffler scrapes going over certain speed bumps), but I don't know enough about Mustangs to say for sure. Measuring from the ground to the lowest point of the body (bottom edge of rocker panel), it's 6 1/4 inches off the ground.
Can anyone tell me what the standard height of this car should be? Thanks, I appreciate any educated advice on this.

That sounds about right for a stock height car. My car is lowered and I have about 3 inches of ground clearance

Take off a wheel and see if there's an aftermarket spring on there

u should check under the car to see if one of the muffler hangers is broke. maybe thats why it easily scrapes. im lowered a little more than that and i dont scrape alot on speed bumps. but then again i go into speedbumps in a certain angle so nothing really scrapes

Find stock springs from someone who just lowered. I just threw mine away because noone wanted them lol.
