Suspension ride height measurements please

Recommended Posts

I've recently fitted Monroe Reflex dampers to my 1.4 petrol SE and the ride height has ended up at fr 36mm rr 34mm (I forgot to measure the height before I started). I measured the ride height the ride height of a standard sport to compare and that was 35mm fr & rr. I figure the front dampers have had the same effect as FSDs and raised the front so fitted Weitec front springs at the weekend but after 200km it's only come down 5mm to 35.5. Shitting elk still :(

Does anyone have any measurements of any suspension setups to compare? I'd like to get it sitting level again!

 

Mfg :)

Hmm, lots of good info there:cool:

 

Am I correct in thinking that if a gas shock effectively increases the spring rate I need to run a lower spring rate to get it to sit & ride the same as standard?

yes. It may be that there are differences of about 10mm in changing to gas shocks. during my conversion, I have therefore taken KAW 55/30 to make up for it. now he is pretty straight, I like it.
