Can anyone please post on here what the stock ride height of thieir 03-04 hard top is? From ground to fender using tape measurer. With H&R race springs Im showing 27' right now. Been screwing around with the suspension and for some reason my car looks higher now.

Thanks

Are you sure the springs are in the right way? The pigtails need to be facing a certain way for the springs to sit right. Have you driven the car after you messed with the suspension? Sometimes the car needs to be driven to sit back down the right way.

Yes I drove it around the block a few times, it did settle a little bit. On the way out to work this morning, I looked at it and looked like it dropped a little more. I'm trying to avoid driving it anymore the wheels r toed in bad cuz of the work I did.

I went from coilovers and tubular a arms back to stock a arms and h&r race springs that I use to have on the car. Now I noticed that in the stock a arms inside the spring perch there are 2 little holes, does the spring pigtail have to b lined up on one of these? I have the spring as far forward as it will go right now.

I'm not sure but there are threads on SVTP that show diagrams of their placement.

Ok thanks. Now I have a base number to work with. At least i know it's lower than stock, I think I have issues with how I placed my springs in the a arms.

There is a notch or recess on the lower control arm that the bottom pigtail should drop into.
There are also rubber insulators or isolators on the top and bottom of the spring that can affect the ride height.
The bottom one is a piece of tube and the top is a pad.

So do I place the spring as far forward as it will go? I also read that you should put the pigtail on the 2nd hole on the a arm. I was also thinking about taking out the bottom isolator too that would lower it some more.

Does that Steeda x2 ball joint make a ride height difference? I use to have that on the car befor but this time I just put the stock ones on.

Look more closely at the lower A arms. There is an actual depression that the pigtail should fall into. If I remember right, it is on the outer edge of the control arm and kinda points towards the hole for the sway bar mount.

I am not familiar with the Steeda ball joints. Sorry.
