There aint no panel beatin' starting until the cars ride height is set front and rear.
As a requriement for the street, min. 100mm clearance is required.
This was my starter, front and rear lowest parts hanging off the car.
Rear oval superflow type muffler looks ok. Sure takes up some height....
Take the rear struts out, RR tire sitting on the roughly cut gaurd.
LR doing same to stock inner gaurd.
Clearance about right.
Heaps of suspension geometry going on.
Note the wee chop into the chassis to ensure max lowering efforts, and no chassis hitting suspension parts.
Take into account sag and we have penty of suspension travel available.
better remember the dimensions next time....
speaking of a travel limiting device,
Rear struts, B4.s revalved with 300lb spring
For the front, oilpan the lowest (ergh, this wont last long , better thing about a gaurd/sheild?).
Wound the front up, using the full strut section moving out of the strut housing, keeping the overall travel the same.
I finished with 110mm ground clearance to the under side of the oil pans lowest point.
Sus arms are horizontal roughly eyeing.
To sort the castor situ with wheel lagging in the gaurd space, dug these japanese castor arms/tension rod from Import monster a while back, when it was affordable with rates.
Nice quality stuff, plenty of beef.
They offer a little more total length than the modified stocker.
It still isnt enough. Will get the stock modd'd ones lengthened again.
Wheel further forward, but lets keep going.
It would probably be prudent to get a hold of a castor/camber gauge, would make life easier.
a change of face?
