    Ride height

    To help high speed stability {-} , GD reccommend that the ride height at the rear is approx 1 inch higher than the front. Does anyone know where the reference points are to measure the difference. I'm certain I never did this when originally setting the car up & with track days on the horizon......

    RE: Ride height

    On a Dax the measurements are taken between the bottom of the chassis and the ground.
    I guess a GD will be similar.

    RE: Ride height

    as kev says,the chassis is only the real accurate place to measure from,even if it is a nightmare to get at
    I set my ride height by measuring the threaded portion under each adjuster ring on the shocks,not ideal but measured at a few key areas on the car and it seems ok :tu
    Gone over to the darkside with a TVR Chimaera but really enjoying it. Not unlike the cobra but a bit more practical.
