Shawn I just scanned the whole suspension area in the 97 PA FSM and did not find any mention of ride height specs.
I will look around further tomorrow & see if I can find something for you.
I wish all 5 books for the PA were available in a pdf format.
It would make life so much easier.

Art, look in the section that covers frame specifications. It should cover the proper frame dimensions for post accident repairs including body height from the ground to a known point.

Ya that makes 2 of us. Possibly Mike may know more about the above.
There was no real mention of ground to body measurements that I could find in the section.
