I've got SOT strut rods for my 67. Unfortunately I don't have the original strut rods in place and am unsure of what the initial length of the new strut rods should be set to. Does anyone know? Thank you

It’s the weekend- thought maybe he’d see the post?

I would think a good starting point would be neutral, no push, no pull. I'd set it on the ground and bounce the front end a few times to get it to settle and tighten the strut nuts.

Use plumb bobs or get someone that can hold a tape measure at the center of the rear axles. With the front wheels straight adjust the each strut rod so the front spindle center line is at 108".

He answered an email I sent him last night, so maybe try emailing him?

I emailed him. He answered. Said to install so nothing interferes and get it to an alignment shop.

I would start with the lower arm perpendicular to the frame, which should be about the same as the wheel centered in the wheel well (as noted above).
