Prepping the Suspension

In order to get the right mounting points of the body on the chassis we first need to find out its lowest point of suspension travel.  We do this by removing all the suspension so that the chassis sits on the suspension bump stops.

By doing this we know where the chassis will sit at its lowest point, and also where the wheel/tire’s maximum point of travel is located.  This way when we mount our body we can ensure that there is still some space between the tire and the body so that there isn’t any chance of rubbing.
