Checking ride height and tweak
When you guys are setting ride heights, do you just let place the car on a level surface and measure or do you push it down and let the suspension settle or just let it drop into position then measure?

Also I'm using a MIP tweak station, if for example the rear wheels are on the solid bar, the fronts being on the moveable section, if the RHF wheel appears the be down (bubble going towards the LHF) do you adjust the preload on the LHF spring to push down on that corner or do you adjust more preload on the RHR spring so the chassis then places more weight onto the LHF.

Thanks for any help

Hey Ratter...
I personally drop the car on a level surface then take a measurement...
When setting the tweek on a touring car I don't add preload, I change the length of the shock... I noticed by changing the preload to adj. for tweek the car doesn't turn the same or feel equal on the track... So I'd unscrew the bottom of the shock a half of turn and add a preload clip or turn the screw down on the shock body to maintain the same spring pressure. I like to use 4 scales to make sure the weight is eqal on all 4 tires, but if you use a tweek board setup, make sure you check the front and back.
Hope this helps..
