How much of a difference from the LF to RF should there be in ride height? I have the old big body 77 Monte Carlo. Is the LF supposed to be 1-2 inches lower than the RF?

On my rear, they are very close - probably within 1/2 an inch. What about the front? Do you run the LF lower than the RF?

The usual standard for dirt is 1/2 to 3/4 higher on the right side. As far as binding the rearend if you stagger the ride heights, thats incorrect. Even though the car sits lower on the left sitting still it still rolls over on the right side in the corner. Its true that there is some binding in the rear and that heims pivot better but the rubber bushings work just fine.
