Default Ride height...

How are the Bonnies supposed to sit? Now that I have my ELC fixed, it looks kinda high in the *** end. Back looks about 1-2" higher than the front. I was thinking about trying to adjust the linkage, but am sick of fooling with it right now.

That'* in the service manual - I have the 93 specs at home. Not sure if the 99 is the same.

My 92 sits up fairly high also. I suppose you could adjust something or change something to bring it lower. I have never tried that.

I want mine to sit lower. Looks really high, especially in the back, even though it'* normal height. But I'd assume you can just get some shorter springs to drop it.
