I pulled mine out of winter storage and I'm getting it ready for spring. Anyway, I was looking at it, and thought it looked like it was sitting a little bit taller than I remembered. Middle of the GT nose, I'm seeing about 9.25" to the bottom of the front edge. Side ground effects is 6.75"
Does that sound about right? Current one is an 86GT with KYBs and Fiero Store front and rear swaybars... my memory is telling me my 88GT I had in college (15+ years ago) was lower, but could just be my memory getting old.
It’s the weirdest thing. I have three Fiero’s at my household. The ‘85 GT sits pretty even. The ‘86 GT sits very high in the back. My ‘88 sits way to high in the front and is lower in the rear than the other two. No suspension mods or changed out springs on any of them. I suspect spring “sag” has a lot to do with all this varying ride heights.
65mm is 2.55" in the middle of the pic, where id think it would be the bottom of ground effect measurement where i had 6.75". Tgat doesnt seem quite right. It it was that low, id think any roadkill would wreck ya

Yes, sorry didn't put that in above. Was checking same data applies to 88. Add X inches(mm) to datum line for ride height on level surface. Help a lot when trying to find problems like drop in front or rear for any reason.
