resetting my height after 100mi of driving. it seems the shocks have settled a bit as front and back is lower than previos 4" and 4.5" respectively.
after doing some more reading, i see it's more important to get the threads on the shocks even, rather than the actual height, corner to corner, correct?
when I have even no. of threads showing on my front springs, my PS is right at 4" but my DS is a bit higher.
i'm assuming the wt of the driver will compensate for this difference?

I always recommend counting the threads so left = right. W/o doing a corner balance, I figure to trust that FFR built the frame correctly so that a geometric guideline (= coils) will indicate a correct balance. I wouldn't worry about your slight height difference L to R at all. Driver in the car will definitely drop the left side.

For what it's worth, mine have sometimes been intentionally up to 1/4" different after corner weighting. So I wouldn't worry too much about there being a small difference side to side. Craig "recipe" sounds like a good plan to go by.

So........now I know why the "counting threads" was stressed.
Always find something here I missed.
Thanks guys.
