Re: [DML] Front Ride Height Intentions - Documented Proof

Claude isn't all wrong here. In the late seventies the Ford plant I worked 
in installed two perfectly level pads in our final area to measure a 
percentage of vehicle bumper heights each production shift per government 
regulations. We were building Crown Victoria's at the time. My job then had 
nothing to do with that particular area but I remember walking past those 
pads many times. The reasoning behind the regulation was to get bumpers on 
all vehicles to match up thereby reducing damage in low impact collisions. 
Remember the MG's of that era suddenly got ugly rubber bumpers and they sat 
several inches further off the ground than previous models.
