YOU: Rasta, your rear suspension is sure compressed a lot. Is something broken back there?

ME: No, that's what happens when you HAUL BLOODY ASS down the 'Screw WOT while on boost in third.

Cool picture !

How hard are your rear springs? How much static ride height do you have? I have had big problems scuffing my exhaust system on the lowest part (the down pipe), I now needed to raise my ride height a bit which wasnt that super low from the beginning.

Rears are 27. Ride height is around 4.5" at the bottom of the rocker.

FULL RES PIC.

I must have missed this when you originally posted it. Awesome pic!

Thanks for the details on your suspension height. It's always good to see real numbers. I have 27mm torsions on my '82 & the ride height measures out very similarly to yours. Do you have full height bump stops on the trailing arms?
