      Very nice. This info should go in the FAQ. *Goes off to find mod*

      Who needs metric anyway. My license says I'm 193cm. Like I know what that is... Or for that matter, the cop pulling me over.

      One correction, I believe it should be 1987-1990 and 1991 - 1993 rather than 1987-1991 and 1992-19933.

      Good info though, we shouls all measure our cars and provide data on how much drop various suspension setups provide. Watch this space for my info.

      Thats what I thought but this quoted directly out of the book, Id check my 91, but it has 230K miles on it and is pretty saggy.

      Also remember, people who have a heavier part in their car, ABA 3A Etc.. it will be lower...
