I want to raise the front ride height. Does anybody know how much one turn of the Koni coil over collar will raise the ride height? Jim

The front suspension has a linkage ratio built in so 1/8 movement of the adjuster will raise the car somewhat more than 1/8 inch. I don't remember the ratio exactly but you can get an approximate ratio w/ a tape measure. measure from the center of the UCA frame mount bolt to the center of the lower balljoint ( a little guessing will be needed for the center). Measure again from the frame bolt to the center of the lower coilover bolt. If the coilover is 10 inches out and the ball joint is 12 inches out, the car will move 1.2 times the amount you move the adjuster.

x2, 1 turn is about 1/8"

I turned it 2 full turns to raise my front-end about 1/4"
That's about what I remember. I ended up writing on the F-Panel with a sharpie the # of notches each time I adjusted - due to the car settling after I put the body on, etc. No one else is going to see the writing on the F-Panel besides me and it is right their to see it when I need it...

Thanks for the advice. My alignment shop said to bring it back for a recheck
after 5000 miles, so I need to raise the front ride height about 3/16" back to
the original 4" measurement.
