How much ground clearance should we set, front and rear? I'm looking for ball park figures. This will be with a 4 link rear suspension, and straight axle front.

Years ago a very talented individual explained to me that ground effects only apply to 2" or less. I don't know what your goal is but that might be useful info.

3 in. min front of car to about a foot behind front axle then 2 in. for rest of car (Except pan & headers) is about what the rule book says. I would try to keep it close to that.

I guess we are going to go with about 5" in back, and 3" in front. Depending on what the guys decide this weekend, we can change from that.
