Setting the reference height

The reference height is the vehicle height at which the wheel alignment has to be measured.
You can obtain the required reference height for your model from the tables at the top of this page.

The front reference height is H1 the rear is H2 and is measured between the road and the respectiv jacking point.

Usualy we would expect that the reference height is lower then the normal ride height. The easiest way to fix the vehicle into position is by inserting a spacer in the relevant places and and weigh the car down. (This part is up to anyones imagination)
