The front can come up a tad unless you are happy where it is at.
I'm getting the tape measure out tomorrow and we can see where its all at! Thanks!The front can come up a tad unless you are happy where it is at.
Keep in mind it drops when you get in....LOL!
The rear not much you can do until the springs settle....or load the trunk with beer!!
Okay, I did some measuring.
My twin (SIXPKRTs CAR) measures in at:
My car measures in at:
FRONT: 29.75-inches (+ 3.25-inches greater than Twin)
REAR: 19.5-inches (+ 3.00-inches greater than Twin)
Wow - no wonder I thought I looked taller than other cars!
I also discovered (had forgotten) that I installed air shocks. It must have been during the years I drove all over the USA for work. My trunk and rear seat was always loaded with clothes, gear, equipment and miscellaneous stuff so I must have felt they were needed. When I depressed the schrader valve, no air came out so they are completely empty. First thing I plan to do this week is disconnect the shocks and see if they are bottomed out and adding height to the rear. Standby for updates! Thanks everyone for the posts! Thank you SIXPKRT for the pics and measurements!
Doesn't the service manual give factory spec'd ride heights?
It does. Those fender measurements are a quickie that were floated around by alignment shops. The real measurements are to be done from underneath by measuring the distance from the floor to to the lower ball joint, then the floor to the where the torsion bar goes into the lower control arm and subtracting one from the other. Or something to that effect. The specs are in the FSM.
Always set the ride height first, before any other adjustments, otherwise the front can act squirrelly.
