I think I may have asked this question before, I'm not sure. I tried a search and couldn't find anything so...

Is there a maximum panel height? or perhaps a max main breaker height?

Inspection Saturday turned up a panel with 5' from bottom to floor, and 6'8" from main to floor. What if any is the rule/code here?

There's no rule for the enclosure height.

In general, the breakers are supposed to be no more than 6'-7" above the floor. (Two meters.) There are several exceptions, but probably none that apply to your situation.

Reference is 240.24(A) and again at 404.8(A)

Personally, I woudn't quibble over an inch.
