I am running a ford front clip on my Lightning mod and i am having trouble getting the ride height right. I had RF 16 degrees LF 18 degrees on top of A arm.Right rear was 6in. from top of axil tube to bottom of frame rail. We are having trouble with car bottoming out on right side. Frame height on right side where main frame bends up is only 4 1/4 inches from ground to bottom of frame rail.Please any info would help thanks

We run a Ford stub, different chassis manufacturer, but we use the front lower a-frame bolt for measuring ride ht's. Running Hoosier Super Chanilink A-40, we set ours at 8 3/4" to the center of the bolt.

Not saying it's right for your chassis but it might give you a reference points because that establishes the lower a-frame angle.

8 1/2" ride ht. for American Racers.
