When I set the ride height on my Merc, [it's on a 77 Cutlas chassis], the top of the whitewall on the front is even with wheel opening and the rear has the bottom tip of the skirt at the whitewall/rim point. The rims are stock chevy 15x6 , tires 215/75r15. If the front sat any lower, the tires would rub when turning. The car appears to be lower in the rear but the rocker panels are parallel the the ground. BTW, anybody notice the side molding?
