Default Standard Ride Height for 3.2 Sport

Hi,

Being new to a '95 3.2 Sport and a little concerned how easy it is to bottom the front suspension on a rough roads if you are pushing on I'd like to check if the suspension has sagged over the last 24 years (!)

The only post I could find in a thread through the search function related to XJR's and indicated the following:
FYI, the rideheight at the front should be 153mm under the front cross member and 160mm under the rear edge of the "A" frame, with a +5 to -5mm tolerance.

Could someone conform if that ride height is the same spec for my car please?

Thanks!

The factory workshop manual doesn't really help me at all:
Steering and Suspension W: When checking the steering geometry, use the pull-down tools front and rear to set the ride height front and rear to the following dimensions:
6 Cylinder : Front ride height : 153 +or- 5mm to underside of front crossbeam. Rear ride height: 160 +or- 5mm to underside of rear edge of A frame
12 Cylinder: Front ride height: 143 +or- 5mm to underside of front crossbeam. Rear ride height: 160 +or- 5mm to underside of rear edge of A frame.
Sportspack derivatives whose kerb height is below the above figures can have their geometry checked at that height. (My emphasis!)




I guess if the front is lower than 138mm I should be worried!
