Do be careful with that ground clearance. For an indication, check Han'* thread regarding the delivery of the 93SSEi delivery from Washington. The professional car movers were shocked by how difficult the SSEi was (your SSE is identical in trim, body, and suspension) to get on and off the trailer ramps.

It'* not just an issue of ground clearance, but the length of the chassis behind the rear axle.

You may find you need to trick your ELC up after putting the car on the dolly. To do this, get in the trunk and pull the carpet back near the right rear strut tower. Find the ELC/Inflator selector soloniod valve on the seat back. Disconnect the black 2 wire connector. Turn the inflator on until the rear of the car rises. After full height is achieved, pull fuse 12 to keep it from venting back to normal ride height.

Keep in mind that if you have leaks (possible with the age of the car), you'll have to reinsert fuse 12 occasionally on the trip to top off the struts.

Well, the topic said two wheels or none. I vote to just drag it behind a truck, no wheels, this way your tires last longer.

I'm in one of those wacko moods today. that happens when i get outa work early.

I had some trouble researching that thread with the info that was provided. I was going to check it out this morning, I'll just be extra careful when trying it out, and if it looks bad, I'll just have to give Bob a call and see when he'* free again...
