At the lowest setting, the body settles 6 inches for a bitchin' slammed-in-the-weeds look. Typical street and track operation is best with the ride set right in the middle. Of course, it is entirely up to you to make sure that your particular wheel and tire combination has sufficient body and frame clearance at all suspension settings and steering angles. On our Buick, the big 17-inch hoops were OK at the rear, but the front tires hit the front fender lips at the lowest settings, so that'd be purely for static display. As the stance increased, we got more full-lock front tire clearance but were only fully safe at maximum ride height. Adding 1/2 inch of front wheel backspacing and slightly smaller tires would solve these issues on our car. Yo, Gallagher, order up another set of front hoops!
