9.5 inches and then use spacers to get the ride height were you want it.

racer17j, so for the fronts if I have a 9 1/2 spring I need to get the adjustable spacers to make it 11in.? If so if I have a 900# spring will that change the rating? Thanks for the help.

that depends on the tires but you don't want to go much lower or you are going to run into issues with bottoming out front arms and messed up rear arm angles mine are 6-7in the front and 7-8 in the rear and this is what she looks like onthe track http://www.actiontrackphotos.com/032905/03290531.jpg
