I think the reason that it's kinda of tricky with the f90 is because the fender well shape from from to back is different. I think the front fender well goes up higher. Could be wrong though lol
I only use ground to fender measures because thats how all my techs measure the cars Ive dropped. Its not going to be meaningful, as you stated, for front vs rear but I need it for side to side. That was my intent when stating how i measure the drop vs the F90 H&R or KW drops. Front vs Front with different hardware only or rear.
