At the risk of being a "Debbie Downer", the JRZ shocks will likely make the street experience less enjoyable and will likely not make the track experience more enjoyable............Honda has done such an excellent job with the basic CTR that the benefits of big changes may only be seen by expert drivers.
I will make a suggestion. when i used to set up cars, i measure from the bottom lip of the rim to the fender bottom it takes the tire squish out of the equation and the measurements are all the same for 4 corners when trying to level the car.
I always did the bottom lip because it is a solid attachment on the tape measure, the top is also ok.. just maintain center line of the wheel with tape when measuring and youre good!
Thank you Taylor for the tip. Much appreciated sir. For clarification, which distance measurement are you referring to... red or blue? Did I mark the points correctly?
IThis post deserves two thumbs up. This will definitely be something, that I use and refer to for help.
On a side note.....We're very similar in that, I have a 1999 Toyota 4Runner which was used for the same purpose. I've had several Honda's along the way, as 2nd vehicle. My CTR isn't a daily, nor a track car. I just plan on keeping it forever, enjoy it for it's fun.
Thanks again for this info/link.
JRZ's are definitely a win-some lose-some proposition - I had an order for a set in 2018 and later canceled it due to the lag time of getting parts/support. They are amazing coilovers when set up correctly for the track, if you are not going to do much street driving where the wear and tear just isn't worth it.
How much front camber were you able to get from the car prior to this install?
I think there is a JRZ servicer in SoCal, would have to ask my buddy at Counterspace Garage for you. I know I wouldn't have placed the order in the first place if they couldn't be serviced quickly, I just don't remember whereThe idea of having to pull them off once a year for service that probably isn’t cheap and may involve shipping if there isn’t an authorized JRZ center in SoCal is not appealing...
Currently on stock suspension and ride height. Factory alignment, no camber I’m aware of. Would probably benefit from a proper alignment for the track.
