Setting droop
Good afternoon,
I wanted to get people's opinion on how they set droop on a touring car and what is the proper way. I'm sure will be subject to peoples preference. Do you do droop over ride height, droop blocks and measure from the lower hinge point of the control arm?

I typically measure over ride height, but will use blocks if I'm following a setup that lists it that way.

You can either use blocks and then a drop gauge to measure droop or just place the chassis flat on the setup board and use a ride height gauge to measure droop. Using the blocks gets the chassis up off the board and you can make it easier to see where you're pulling the measurements from. I usually use the lowest point on the arms at the outer hinge pin. So if I have antidive on the front I'll use the front side of the arm to get the measurement. Same thing the the rear, if I have any antisquat, I'll pull the measurement at the rear side of the rear arm. If that makes sense. I think it's what's ever easiest for the person checking their droop, as either way described above (blocks and droop gauge or chassis on the board and a ride height gauge) can get you the same result.

Thanks guys! So either way will accomplish the same thing. On the setup sheets I find online for my Tc7.1.Are those measurements listed droop block and gauge numbers or are they over ride height? If you guys know.
