Front suspension to low 530xd wagon

I have a problem with my front suspension being to low.
The clearing between tire and wheel arch is about 1 inch lower that other 530XD I have found to compare with.
Only the front differs, the rear has the same hight as compared cars.
I have tried to check for 3rd party parts but it seems to be stock.
The shock absorber seems to be a factory mounted Sachs. (see picture)

I have measured the hight from the top of the spring to the bottom of the spring (see picture)
It is about 8,07inches high.
Could anyone with an XD 530 facelift measure their hight next time the wheel is off so I can compare.

Any other suggestions on what may be wrong?
