If anyone has a 95-97 854R with stock 205/45/17s and stock or Koni struts (no Bilsteins, please), I need a ride height measurement.
I need the measurements from the center of the wheel cap to the fender and the measurement from the fender to ground (thru the middle of the wheel).
I could use the same on the rear wheels too, if possible
Thanks,
JRL

Re: (DVolvoguy777)

I think the R sits a bit lower from the factory. Are you running 17's?

Center cap to FENDER, it's going to be the same, center cap to the ground whether it's lowered, raised or jacked up like a 4x4.
Thanks anyway, my mistake
, I corrected it
So, 25" is on a STOCK springed (850)R with the above tire size?

Went out and measured mine, now back with Konis, (took the Bilsteins off) and it's exactly 25" which I guess now is the correct stock height.
The Bilsteins lifted the front up almost 3/4"
looked like an XC http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif and no, they didn't "settle" at all

What shocks did you use in the rear and have you converted them to the Koni as well?

BTW, Happy Easter!

JRL,

Sorry I didn't get back sooner. My puter at home is not hooked up to the net. Other wise I would have answerd. No, my car has the stock T5 rims which are 16". I do have a 97 855T5. All stock except the control arms and swaybar endlinks from IPD.
