I'm assuming the red rubber bits on the rear axle are the bump stops. so my ute is sitting on them at the moment, does that mean that it has been lowered, coz the previous owner said he hadnt modified it in any way.

Could they be new ones? coz the springs are also red and dont look worn and dirty the rest of the underside?

Need a picture. Are you sure you're looking at the bump stops and not nolothane bushes or ProBag inserts?

springs are pedders may be you have a set of pedders rear bump stops as well that would explain them being red

dosnt mean its been lowered (the guy you got it off may have sent it to pedders at 1 point) it could be lowered( can you get the part no off the little tag that norm sits on the spring? if you get a part no from the springs(look it up on google AND THAT SHOULD LET YOU KNOW IF ITS BEEN LOWERED ONTO PEDDERS SPRINGS) cheeers

you could measure from the centre of the hub of the wheel to the top of the wheelarch with a tape measure.. i will measure mine (has kings lows in it) and we can compare.

the utes sit pretty high standard.

are you tucking the rims or the tyres? cause you can change rim size but not tyre size really. If you tuck the RIMS then i say its lowered.
