was wanting to order new springs and leafs so-as to get a nice even drop, but the previous owner heated the springs and did numerous things to the leafs.... so i was wondering if anyone has the distance from the ground to the lowest part of the fender lip in the front and in the back?
this way i can order the correct number of inches of drop front and rear to get it even... thanks in advance

-the car is a 62 Galaxie 500 Club Victoria 2 dr hardtop

you might try finding the stock ride height originally and figure from there. Unless someone here has new springs at stock height you won't get a very accurate measurement. Might try contacting Greg Donahue
www.gregdonahue.com or Dennis Carpenter www.dennis-carpenter.com and see if they can help you out. Unless someone has a book on the '62 that gives that info. I only have '64 stuff.

This will get you bumped up to the top if nothing else.

The shop manual usually has stock frame dimesions and a datum line ( level ground) as a refernce to measure to a fixed frame point. Stu
