: Hi.
: I have just set the rear suspension to the book height of 6,3/4 inches as stated in the book and with 158/69/13 on the front it has it bum in the air and looks like a bitch on heat I run 205/60/13 on the rear on 6,1/2 rims and as this hight is clearly to allow for two people, a boot full of luggages and a full tank can someone who runs in a race series for historic please let me know what hight they run at I run in hill climbs and sprints and have just had the torsion bars retempered and new Koni fitted. I realise that it will settle a bit as the bars settle in I do not want to be bottoming out and damaging the shocks
: Your help would be appreciated

My suggestion would be to set the rear about half an inch higher than the front.
The settings for ride height depend on the old cross ply tyres which are no where near the tyres you are using.
I find the limiting factor is the diff housing hitting the under side of the floor of the boot when two up.
