How much to turn the Coil Spring Adjusters

I just installed a set of the Speedway springs and the extended adjuster to my 71 Chevelle. It's now sitting about an inch too low and I want to raise it up. Is an inch on the adjuster equal to an inch ride height. Anybody played with this at all? I want to make sure I get it right the first time so I won't have to keep taking the springs out and stuff

Thanks

Corey

1/2" on the adjuster = 1" change in ride-height

Wow that was quick. I'll try that tonight. I love these springs by the way, in part because of your recomendation. I have the 575's now and can probably go up to 700's with no problem.

That's good to hear... I've got 700s but haven't driven it yet.
