Ride Height:Class A 1995 P-Chassis Motorhome

Does anybody have correct info on ride height for the front and rear of a P-Chassis. There are so much different info on this subject. A springs shop tolded me that the rear should be 1-2" higher than the front.

Thanks

This is not always true. I beleive the front suspension shoud have about 2" of clearance between the frame and the bump stop. the rear would depend on how much weight you hve on it but it shouldn't be lower than the front.

Thanks for your reply speed racer. 2"-2.5"ish is what I am hearing too. I have about 3.4" front clearance loaded. I agree that the rear should not be lower than the front for handling/steering issues.
