    Hi guys,

    not really sure how to setup the front suspension height, may I ask you for comments?
    This is how I eyeballed it after putting in a missing adjuster bolt.
    Front still seems to a bit lower than the rear end, shall I leave it that way?
    To me she looks fine...

    Thanks, Andreas.

    Ok, how or where do I measure that?

    Yep, previous owner got a 2" body lift.

    Thanks, Andreas.

    On a level surface, measure from the top of the wheel arches to the ground.

    That is not how you measure "Z" height. You measure "Z" height from the center of the control arm pivot bolt to the lowest point on the front knuckle inside of the ball joint

    Here’s the table that goes along with it. Item #11 has the dimensions, L65 being those with the diesel.

    I was referring to ride height in regards to the factory 2" difference front to rear, not Z-height.
