When I would drop my car. The rear would go to 19mm or 20. However if you barely lifted the rear it would stay around 27mm. I hope I'm not sounding stupid here. I returned this car to stock and I'm just trying to get a good base setup that my car will perform decent while I learn to adjust it. I run at Rocck Racing in Knoxville Tennessee and Chuckles RaceWay in Cookeville TN. TBH I'm kinda growing frustrated.
I don't care for the drop method to set ride height, this can lead to inconsistencies if you are not dropping from the same height/angle etc... especially if you have too much pack, your chassis may not bottom out when dropping the car. I find it best to press the chassis flat and let the springs rebound once to get my readings, this tends to be more consistent. It's also very important to make sure there is absolutely no binding anywhere in the links too. Sometimes you need to pinch the ball links with pliers like this to get the plastic perfectly round:SHouck said:Ok so I rebuilt both rear shocks. I could see no issues with either. No bent shafts and O-rings are all in Great shape. However when I drop the car to check Ride Height it's Different every time. Is this a issue or common.
Are you sure you have the right springs? They come in different lengths, so measure the length of the current set of springs and try going up the next length size you need and that should do the trickHi Guys, I'm new to racing and bought myself a eb48.4 used and I'm having a heck of a hard time trying to adjust my ride height as well. On most setups I see generally the front is lower then rear. On this one, its my rear just hangs to low. I tried to adjust the shock collars on the front and pretty much set them all the way down. On the rear I loosened them up real high but the squat of the car I can't seem to really get to 29 rear 27 front. Someone suggest moving the shock post hole positions but before I do that there has to be a way to just get to the stock setup height.
I put fresh shock oil 550 front / 450 rears. I swapped the orange springs in the rear to blue to see if that makes a difference. I just can't seem to get the rear of the buggy taller then the front. With the collars in extreme directions I can get it kinda level not exactly. What am I missing here? Should I pull all the shocks off and check all the shafts? Any other ideas?
