This was discussed a long time back - the general consensus was that no part of the car should be lower than 100mm so that you can clear the majority of speed bumps.

This is different from the best ride height for handling, which is that the rear height should be greater than the front (as ianhurley20 has said); if you make the front higher than the rear then the handling gets VERY interesting at speed!

The older I get, the better I was...
