This is a 2" dropped spindle, note the location of the hub with relation to top and bottom of the spindle.

The rocker panel height below the front edge of the door is approximately 8.07" with full fuel tank.

Look at them compared to the 2" drop in the link, yours are stock.

A dropped spindle lowers the height of the vehicle by raising the position of the hub on the spindle. If you look at the link I gave you and compare the position of the hub of yours compared to the link you will see your hubs are on the bottom of the spindle, thus they are not raised and you do not have dropped spindles.
Why do you even think they are not stock?
