Sitting on Dunlop SP20s 165x15 I have wheel well heights of 26-3/4ths front and 26-7/8ths rear.

I am rebuilding the front end on our TR4 after a catastrophic failure of a vertical link a few years ago. It seems that a previous owner lowered the car quite a bit. I want to return it to the standard ride height. Here is the question. What are the measurements of the wheel openings from the ground? I measured straight up at the center of each wheel. The measurement I took are Front 25.75in. and Rear 26.75in. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

1964 TR4, Rebuilt front end with Moss stock coil springs approximately 4,000 miles ago. Original leaf springs in rear. Michelin X tires.

RF 26 1/4
LF 26
RR 26 3/34
LR 26 3/8

Looks like it might be time to check the tire pressure.

I guess that it is not 'that' much lower than others....It really looks too low. When I get the front rebuilt, I am sure that the rear is going to look stupid. The 'while you are at it' strikes again!

Thanks for the info,

Brent.
