I added 1.5mm shim below the front knuckles. That pushes down the chassis 1.5mm relative to the wheel axle.
But the springs above the knuckles get compressed if you don't raise the upper arms by 1.5mm. Therefore I added 1.5mm washers between the upper arm and the center and and also at the two back screwing points on the servo mount. And I just left 1.5mm space at the side screws (where the droop setting screws are for f104).
After mounting all my electronics and battery, the car sits at 3.4mm front, middle, and back.
I might just run it like that. I have thin shims I can use instead of the 1.5 mm spacers so I can raise it to 4mm if I wanted.
Addendum: on top of upper arm, the center screw was running out of length so I replaced the stock washer with a thinner one.
