Does any one know what the correct ride height is for the 80-82? I just changed the rear spring (VBP composite 330lbs) and it sits nice and low. I need to know what the height should be at the top of the wheelwells. What a difference from the leaf spring!

I had mine set at 28" after suspension rebuild.The rear sits a tad bit lower than the front.Looks great handles even better.I don't think there is any "official"ride heighth.

The car sits at 28". I guess thats the universal. I just have to adjust my exhaust pipes, theyre now too low. I had replaced the leaf spring about 5 yrs ago. The car sat too high and was lopsided. Now im like a pig in sh_ _. It rides, handles and looks excellent. The biggest difference is the rebound. The composite has a soft rebound and the leaf was like a shotgun blast. Wicky88, if your thinking of doing it I wish I could go back to when I replaced the leaf 5 yrs ago.
