Question...



I feel like the rear is sagging just a bit... does anyone know of a way to raise the rear by 1/4 of an inch without changing the springs? I love the way the car handles and rides with Vogtlands but as u can see there is just a bit of sag imo.

It could be the body. People had to measure in the past to figure it out because it gives a false raked impression. Most with coil overs are dropping the front as low as possible to get the stance right.

Now that u say that the front sits half inch lower but the car still looks likeits sagging a bit in the back. I think ur right about the body.

Tall body at the back is good for Aero, it can make that end look heavy from certain angles.

Look at how much 'fender" is above the fender flares at the back vs. nothing at the front.

What's the ground clearance just before the rear tires, and just behind the front tires?

Rear-6.5" front-6". It is lower upfront but it looks like its sagging because i can only fit one finger in the back but two in the front. Odddd.

I think most cars don't have the rear wheel opening as large as the front.....
