The height of a sportsroof is listed as being 50.1 inches. I have to assume that is from the highest point on the roof to the ground. No front and rear height dimensions are listed. No alternate listings for the various engine and tire combinations that were available. I never liked the slightly nose high attitude of the cars. So i removed 1/2 coil from the front springs with a cut off wheel to give the a level stance. Chuck

Some say it's not good to use rear air shocks, but I haven't had any problems and I've been running them for years. Air it up and looks pretty level to me without looking like a 4x4. Do you have rubbing issues with the 1/2" cut? I do like the stance of your car.

No signs of rubbing so far (not many miles). It worked with no rubbing on my 72 R code Mach as well (wish I still had it). Chuck
