For most models it is 5". Lambocars.com has a wealth of info like that. Seems not many people know that ride height is an absolutely critical beginning dimension.

5" at the front spoiler and 6" just ahead of the rear tires on the rocker skirts.

Im rebuilding a 97 Roadster that was burned, when I bought it it had no Control Arms, Im going to use NAERC style front and rear Hubs.
In front im putting C5 Knuckles and rear NAERC style Hub.

Inner Control Arm Bushing will all be OEM Lamborghini because I dont want to move or alter mounts and outer on rear will be Moog Bushing that I found that will accept 3/4 Bolt.

I have to set the right height on Frame mount wheels with Knuckles to set the control arm lengths.

The same. The bottom of the frame is about 1/4" taller than the bumper. I suggest putting in a skid plate unless you can get the hydraulic lift to work tee'd into the power steering pump.
