you probably should clarify that you are on hoosier tires at the grove. they are a bit taller in diameter

custom has it pretty close to where I set mine on hoosiers.....I have been a little higher but car seems to like it set right where custom says or maybe just a tad higher......If you try to run same hights as chevelle your front end geometry will be all messed up and you will have bottoming out problems between the lower A-frame and the frame.....hope I get to race against you at the big show...good luck.
