    It doesn't really matter for the thread engagement aspect of things, I was just wondering because that looks pretty low and mine were adjusted up quite a bit to achieve a similar height when I had the SRT4 versions. The version with the longer rod is about perfect for everyone IMO.

    You should have the 40mm longer struts than the original versions.

    I have tried to improve things along the way.

    That's pretty much the height my '91 sits at with majorly cut Eibachs. I like it but the struts are bottoming out. Pretty much ruined a pair of Konis

    BC's don't bottom out like that. They have a fixed travel based on the length of the spring and the strut. The adjustment is in the bottom mount rather than from a shorter spring so they don't lose any travel when you lower them.

    The limits of lowering is mainly from the control arm angle when you run BCs.

    Nice. Did you see my previous question about getting a spring for the BC fronts that would match the Eibach 2804 fronts, so they would work with the Eibach 2804 rear springs if I left them in there? IIRC the 2804 front spring rate was 300 lbs/in.

    Those who have the original SRT length version ... what was the car height when they were adjusted all the way up?

    I'm not sure if I have any pictures of our Daytona with them on there. I'll check to see if I have any with the CSX. It's about as low as you want to go with them adjusted as high as I felt comfortable going given the thread engagement spec.Click image for larger version.

    ETA: that's a bad photo of our old daytona with them at their as shipped height. It was way too low.

    ETA II: Here is a photo of my CSX with the same struts on it. It's not the best either, as it looks like there is a lot more room than there really is. IIRC you can get about two fingers between the tire and fender. The car is about a hand's width off the ground at the front fascia. The control arms are roughly parallel with the ground though, so that's what is really important.
