Dan,

While you are correct that the measurments should be from the ground to the fender well, I think you might have that backwards.

When correctly set (WD bars in place), the front should be closer to the ground and the back should rise showing load being transferred to the front from the back.

Thanks Lou for clearing that up! It has been a while since I set mine up. Guess I rememeber it the other way.

Danielflading, if the measurment for the front wheels raise about 1/2" you're still taking weight off your front axle and thus effecting your steering control.
