Question Ride Height

Looking for the best ride height. Did a search and came up with some different numbers. It has power steering. Using the following for set up:

Castor 6-7 degrees
Camber - 0.5 degrees
Toe - 1/16 total toe in.

front ride height 4.5" ????
Rear ride height 5.5" ????

IMHO those numbers are about 1/2" too high. Obviously it does depend on the type of roads you usually drive on though.

As per post in the other forum:

4" level front & rear with nothing hanging below the main chassis tubes. No contact with speed bumps when driven over them slowly.

At 3.75" would scrape on the taller ones.
