> the rear end looking too high. So I broadcast an appeal to see
> what other '72s ride at. Got one response. Fred sez his rides

> close to 16" at the bottom of the overrider, 18" to the center
> of the rear bumper. Whoa! Wonder what I installed for springs?
> Sure doesn't look THAT MUCH too high.
> So here goes again: For chrome-bumper folks, how high is
