1. Loosen the droop screws in the arms so that the car has a lot of up-travel.
2. Set your ride height to what you want with your shock adjustments
3. Check your tweak on a tweak station to make sure everything is good
4. Now it's time to set the droop...
Put your ride height measurement tool in the same spot you measured for ride height. Now pull up on the shock tower, but make sure you're holding the tires down. The chassis should raise up, but the tires still on the ground. Measure how high the chassis goes compared to what ride height is set at. That's your droop "above ride height". To set it, just loosen or tighten the droop screw until you get what you want.
Hope that helps.
Jason thanks for the help
At step 4 should the shock be on or off?
