Hi Peeps

I have a 91 cabby which I fitted a H&R cup kit 60/40 suspension set on it with 16" x 9 all round...I also have a tech 2 kit ..

My problem is that when the lower valance is put on there is literally only a finger space between the ground and the valance.

Is there something i can do the raise the ride height on the front slightly so it's not so slammed ...without changing the suspension set up...🙏

Thanks

Ozzy

easy enough to remove if needed.
if it's got t*ts or wheels it's bound to be trouble...............prove me wrong.

The front is a 60mm drop...should I maybe swap out the springs...and would any make of spring work with the shock...or try to get another H&R spring..which from quick reading only do a 30mm variant for the convertible...will that be low enough...🤯
