Pull the car back to the same spot and
check the ride height again. Make any
adjustments that are needed.
Before we started our work we
selected a test loop, locked in the
GPS track with the Ride Command
and drove it enough to get a feel for
the car. After the ride height was set,
just that half-inch of difference made
a nice improvement in handling and
chassis balance. The rear in particular
had a less floppy feel. Once you have
more experience with suspension
adjustments, you may find you prefer a
setting that is slightly different than the
standard ride height. Desert cars might
go a little higher for increased ground
clearance, and cars used on smoother terrain with many turns might use
a setting slightly lower. One thing is
certain—far too many people treat
suspension as a set-and-forget item,
and that can seriously compromise the
handling and ultimate performance of
Other brands of shocks will most
likely have a preload ring and
a locking ring. You will need to
loosen the locking ring before the
preload ring can be moved.
