    Adam,

    Any idea what the radius of the tire would be? My tire and wheels are stock. I'm out of town and won't be back for another few weeks to get a measurement of mine.

    Thanks.

    Sagging rear?

    My 73' convertible has a bit of rake, where the front end seems a bit higher than the rear. Is this normal or are my rear spings sagging?
