Laredo 4X4 V6 Petrol - need stock ride height measurements if anyone can please

Since I bought my Laredo about a year back, I've been gradually building it up, adding Chief Products gear and Mopar skidplates earlier on, then AT's and for the final touch, a lift kit in recent months.

After adding the lift, things have gone a little pear-shaped shall we say. I've had a few issues since the lift, requiring 4 days without the car, including an issue now with the steering rack (that my supplier is endeavoring to fix satisfactorily, so I won't tip the bucket on them just yet...)

Anyway I don't have (and can't find online) the stock measurements for wheel hub centre to wheel-arch trim, so that I can compare the current state of my lift to what should be expected from this kit, measured against the stock ride heights.. If anyone with a stock GC, with steel suspension, 18 inch wheels, and no accessories could measure this for me, front and back it would be very helpful.

Hi Noons thanks for the link

My car has the OME lift. Comparing to the height mentioned on that site, the rear is sitting too low by 30mm. Will worry about that after they fix my steering rack issue. I wonder if they put the wrong shock absorber model in mine, for the Nivomat LL setup.. Mine had the standard shock absorbers pre-lift.
What a saga, I can't wait to get this finished off...



Cheers, Simon
