Hey fordfreak, you ever get tailshaft smacking floorpan at drags?
Or did you put in diff dumpstop and it's hitting that?
If what I'm saying makes you say 'tailshaft hitting floor, WTF??', what shocks and springs are you running :D

Hi Guys ,

NSW LEGAL is 70mm from ground to lowest point of bodywork , which includes aftermarket applications like skirts and mufflers , etc.

Definitely superlows are the way to go... NEVER put ultra lows on a car that has side skirts or you are only gunna keep opening up your wallet for repairs all the time... Fibreglass don't like being pressured or scraped too much , they just crack and shatter.... LOL

Also , wheel size should not matter to the height of the suspension. If you have correct fitting tyres for each size mag , it doesnt matter if you run 14's , 15's , 17s , or even 18,19,20 inch wheels , because the total tyre/wheel package should remain the same diametre , especially where your speedo is concerned. LEGAL regulations say that the speedo cannot be out by and more than 3% due to non factory spec wheels.

So if you find that your ride height changes when you change wheels , then best check that the correct tyres are fitted...
