24.5 both ends, I prefer a little more rake to the front.

Are you setting ride heights for looks or handling?

When I got my last 944 Turbo the front was as low as the adjustments would go. It looked really aggressive, but didn't brake worth a darn. At an autocross I raised the front up 1/2 inches to level out the car and got much much better braking.

I'm so ready to get my suspension done... Just need to get the rest of it ordered...

Oh and who should I go to for an alignment and Corner balance? Dumonts or Cory Jump?

And if anyone says Lindsey Racing there will be blood shed....

G-man what sort of ride height do you run on your 911? I am trying to decide just where I want things. From waht I read the euro ride height is: 25.5" front 25" rear. Measured from the bottom of the center part of the fender lip to ground.
Don't really know the exact height, Glen, never measured it. (Really haven't... )
Can't measure it now either, since my car is up on blocks...
I'm pretty sure the front is a tad below Euro height.

here are some pics, car's dirty, I know.







One more is posted in our more private breakfast club social group section.
That one is taken when the car is on a slightly sloped driveway, so you know.
(EDIT: can't seem to figure out how to post pics there, I need an URL??)

Glen & Richard-
Have either of you messed with Google Wave? I was just playing with it... Would be a neat tool for the PCA board if we could get everyone on there.... It even has the option to vote and stuff....

I'll send some invites if you guys think we could make it work...

I am trying to get the perfect balance. Looks is not the most important item. I canít go very low or I drag the tow hooks on every driveway. From my reading Euro height is 25.5 front 25 rear. I think I am going to shoot for 24.5 front & 24 rear. I have until next Tuesday to figure it out.

Sid...Neither Dumont's, Cory, or even Lindsey's have their own alignment rack. Last alignment I had done was a Merls on south Shields. They do a LOT of racing stuff there. Scott at Bob Moore also does great alignments.
