SVT Focus ride height

New member here. I've had my 2003 SVT Focus for about four months. I'm having a few problems though. First, this thing has some SERIOUS negative camber both in the front and the rear. Is that normal? I haven't taken it to be aligned yet as I fear it may have been lowered by the previous owner. I read somewhere (probably here) that the SVT models have no factory camber adjsutment, which leads me to believe that excessive negative camber is caused by lowering. Could someone give me a measure ment to the bottom of the front fender from the ground going through the centerpoint of the wheel? I don't know any other way to tell if it's lowered. If it is, I need to find some stock springs pronto. It eats tires like there's no tomorrow.

Also, my driver side inner fender likes to rub the tire sometimes while braking or making a harder right turn. This further supports the lowered theory. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
