- Place the vehicle on a level surface and
make sure it is settled at its normal ride height.
- Measure off from one left and right
symmetric point on the front end and make a mark on the floor in front
- Once you have both floor marks on each side
of the front end, either draw a line across the front of vehicle or
place a straight edge across the front touching both lines.
- With a sturdy camera tripod that includes a
vertical up/down swivel and attachable laser (laser can be purchased
at most hardware stores), position the laser between two legs of the
tripod as shown and find the center of the vehicle.
- Find the center by swiveling the laser up
and down and adjusting tripod until laser dot is touching two vehicle
center points simultaneously. Once the center is found, swivel the
laser down to the floor and mark the center point with a zero.
- Now you can move the tripod from left to
right with the legs even with the vehicle perpendicular line and tilt
down to suspension measurement points, allowing you to get all of the
width measurements needed.
- Once the suspension point is found, swivel
the laser down to the floor line then measure to the zero point that
was made earlier and record the measurement for input into the
Speed-Wiz suspension calculations.
