tire diameter = 20.75"

front fender = 22.5"

rear fender = 22.75"

Fender measure is in line with the axle

set-up is 185/60/13 avs

springs are of unknown make- progressive old and sagging but doing the job just fine for now. Dot 2 spacers on the rear (soon to be smaller.)

I am going to get new springs and as they all describe drop relative to stock I need a baseline (I have no idea what the stock height is or even what is the standard way to measure.) For those with coil overs what is the max and minimum for you setup?

has to do with bumper requirements that took effect in 1973. My stock 73 has always been 1 inch higher than my stock 69...

I have roughly been able to calculate that my car is lowered about an inch in thr front form the stock location. H&R springs interest me. As do Ireland- also thinking coil over so who knows......

Yeah my 69 was about an inch lower than my 73 as well- which makes this even that much more complicated. All aftermarket springs list a height drop relative to stock- Apparently not an accurate baseline.
