About three hundred pounds of weight moved from the front of the car to the back, bringing the weight distribution to 50/50, with the total a little more than before the conversion.
|Total Weight||Front Weight||Rear Weight||Front Dist||Rear Dist|
This shift caused the front of the car to rise 0.8in and the rear to sag 1.5in.
After adjusting the suspension, the front is 0.8in (20mm) lower than before the conversion and the rear is 0.6in (14mm) lower. This stance is within the service manual specification, at the low end of the range.
To lower the front, I installed H&R OE Sport Springs 54457-55. Just the front springs of course.
To raise the rear, 1in thick Saggy Butt Spacers from Paranoid Fabrications were installed on top of the struts.
