hotchkis leaf spring measurement needed

guys,need a quick measurement of the hotchkis 3 in drop leafs for a 69 Camaro. I need the height of the center of the rear axle/ wheel and bottom of rear fender. So tire height doesn't effect measurement. Any help would be great

13-3/8". Been on the car a couple years, so should be fully settled.

Re: hotchkis leaf spring measurement needed

Lance - is yours a 3" drop? My 1.5" Hotchkis drop measures 12.5" from center of hub up to the fender lip. Bryce is that the measurement you are looking for? You said "to bottom of rear fender" and I don't know where that would be.

I've got the 1 1/2" drop springs from Hotchkis, 2407C, and the measurement from axle centerline vertical to the fender lip is 12 5/8" without chrome trim. Been in the car since 2003.

1969 X44, 355 SBC, BDS 6-71 blower, dual Eddy carbs, TCI Streetfighter TH350, 4000 stall, Denny's driveshaft, 10-bolt 8.5 rear w/4.56 gears, Caltracs, M&H drag radials, 10 point cage

12 1/4 with DSEs. That's with one pad and less than 1/4 tank of fuel. And no spare.
