You guys had me scratching my head thinking I misread the tape
I went out and rechecked and mine measures 4 1/2" on both car and truck, in the center
I think Bruno hit it on the head, Both my vehicles have radial tires and the squish is most likely the difference

Aw yes, the ole scrub line issue

On my 33 the SL is 1 3/4" below the center of the axle
On my 37 the SL is 3/4" below the center of the axle
This is if the tire comes off the rim.
