Set front ride height after replacing front suspension components such as control arms or torsion bars. The car must have a full fuel tank and the spare tire must be in luggage compartment for correct adjustment.
• Before setting wheel load and vehicle height, bounce vehicle a few times to let the suspension settle into the normal ride height position.
• On cars fitted with Bilstein shocks, the "normal ride height position" can vary with the car in the rest position. Pulling the suspension up or pushing it down at the bumper can result in different ride height positions. When checking or adjusting the ride height, manually position the car in the 'mean' or middle position.
^ Measure from floor to center of front wheel dust cap to obtain dimension A.
• Measure from floor to center of torsion bar adjusting cap to obtain dimension B.
