1. measure from the center of the wheel to the fender directly
2. meausre from the lower lip of the wheels to the fender and use ride height Excel sheet.

I tried both and the method 1 = method 2 + ~4/16"... Is the ride heights on the Excel sheet based on method 1 or 2?
Also, are those numbers with SSRcomps or your 19" wheels...(seems the heights by SSRcomps and OEM18" are different)

Thank you in advance!<br>/// Jon

all wheels are different, so measure your wheels and input that number...change the value I have....you can change it.

then measure from 6 oclock on the wheel up to the fender lip...input that number...the calc will take care of the rest for ya...

methods... Steve's numbers are based on the measurement from fender to the lower lip of the wheel..and substract "half of the wheel diameter"..
Based on the indirect method (2nd method), rear heights are pretty close now 13 3/16 and 13 1/16 with SSRcomp wheels (supposed to be 13 and 12 15/16).. while the fronts got lower numbers now 13 4/16 and 13 2/16 (supposed to be 13 9/16 and 13 6/16)... I know these numbers can change when we do coner weight...but the rear looks heigher and I feel it when I drive the car.. I will adjust the heights in a day or so..
How's your trip? Good to see you back to the forum.<br>/// Jon

of 1/16" or 2/16" from using different wheels does not matter?
should I use SSRcomp(track wheels and tires) when I do corner weigh the car?
Thanks.<br>/// Jon
