Where to measure ride height?
Car is a 68 Camaro
My car sits lower than stock...I just don't know by how much.
I think my mono-springs in the rear have sagged, but I like the way it looks. I'm debating on doing a spring swap or 4 link install.
If I do new leaf springs (leaning that way because of the lower cost and easier project), I want to make sure that my car sits as close to where it is now. I'd be an unhappy camper if I get new springs and it sits too high for my liking.
That leads to my questions:
Where do I measure from to figure out my current ride height (for both front & rear)?
What is the stock ride height at those points?
I've read good things here about the global west Cat5 springs. Also saw that Hotchkis now has their 3" drop springs. I've heard people say that when they install new 'lowered springs", that their car doesn't sit as nice as it did before. I think that's probably because the old springs settled and that wasn't taken into account when ordering the new parts.
I want to have the right info so I get the right parts.
Thanks for the help.
