Default What is the ride height of your 1968 Pontaic catalina

I changed the springs, my rear fender wells are 23 1/2 inches of the ground and the fronts are 28 inches.

Need to get correct height before alignment.

Best to get the factory manual and measure like they suggest.. Ride height is very important to a well handling and predictable car.. Too low or too high can cause bump steer issues, with too high being the worst..

Align that 68 with positive caster instead of negative..
