The car was most likely lowered. Can you peak in and see what color the strut spring are?

Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

When these cars are lowered, they with either cut the factory springs which are black. Or they will replace the springs with lowered springs which would be a different color. If your springs are not black, then the springs were changed and the car was lowered. If they are black, then it could be that they cut a coil out of the factory spring to lower the car. The car should not be bottoming out.

Please double check the color of the springs if you can for me to verify my thoughts.
