    Default Suspension Height - Figures Needed

    Morning all,

    We've got a few cars running different suspension setups on here and I wanted to ask if you would measure your cars ride height and maybe a picture of your setup.

    The measurement should be taken in mm, front and rear from the centre of the wheel to the wheel arch, making sure you are on flat ground and your measurement is vertical.

    So...

    Car Type & Engine = ??

    Front Nearside = ?? mm
    Front Offside = ?? mm
    Rear Nearside = ?? mm
    Rear Offside = ?? mm

    Suspension = ?? (can you also include roughly how long the suspension has been on the car and how many miles its done)

    Here's mine:-

    Vectra VXR 2.8 Turbo

    Front Nearside = 325 mm
    Front Offside = 325 mm
    Rear Nearside = 325 mm
    Rear Offside = 325 mm

    Suspension = KW Variant 2 INOX Coilovers (8 months old and 5,000 miles covered)

    Could be fuel weight or the car wasnt on a dead even surface.

    Just turn the car around (so its opposite direct but in the same place), then do the measurements again and see what they say
