I'd have zero tolerance for that.

Even RS+5 in front and RS-5 in the rear would look pretty odd.

Default Encountered problems with rear height

Hi everyone,

Between rain and work I didn't have a chance to work on the car until Sunday.

I raised the front I think I am ok on the height of 129mm. I did it in my praking lot and it's certainly not level, so I'm bringing it to my friends garage tomorrow to measure again.

I am having issues with the rear height. The Bilstein instructions say the permissible range is 195-210mm. I measured and the right rear is at 96mm from chassis to ground. I need to get it higher but as you can see in this photo the ruler shows I'm already at 217/218mm from top of spring perch to middle of bottom mount.

I will continue to rase it tomorrow but I'm worried about the range getting even worse.

I also discovered my rear tires are shot. Should I hold off on any type of rear adjustment until I get new tires? Will the worn tires throw off the measurements?
