Haha, I've got the same phone, that's freakin low! Looks great! If I tried the same thing with my phone it probably wouldn't have anything to prop against.

Not as low as some, but here you go - 3 1/2" front jack point, and 4 1/4 at the rear jack point.

M7 Coilovers 17" wheels and stock size tires 195/45/17 (I think)
