Poring over the RideTech literature I surmised that a general rule of thumb when it came to ride height was to have the airspring compressed by roughly a third. This makes sense when you think about it as you want more suspension when you hit a bump than a dip. With this in mind I needed to deduce where one third compression was exactly. While the following may not be the by-the-book method, it proved the easiest to photograph, and while the suspension travel is greater at the ball joints than the eyes of the ShockWave itself, the 1/3:2/3 ratio is still the same. With that said, picture 20 shows 14 1/2 inches from the jack to the bottom edge of the upper A-arm (which remains stationary throughout the following as there's no spindle connected!) with the ShockWave fully extended.
