Five Hundred/Montego curb height....

Post by Deckard_Cain » Mon Oct 07, 2019 9:23 am

What is everyone measuring for a curb height on their cars? Specifically, the rear...

I understand there may be a difference between fwd and awd variants as well.

With the OE Nivomats and AWD springs, I was measuring 16" left rear, 16.5 " right rear. I replaced both rear with newer, non-Nivomat AWD shocks and springs... getting about the same height.

Via the service manual procedures for R&R, it seems that curb height is mildly adjustable as you need to measure it before and during the replacement, setting it where it was before tightening the lower control arm bolt.

Just looking for a field of measurements to compare. Thanks!
