VSR Products ride height gauge handle

See: VSR Products

VSR Products have introduced a ride height gauge handle. Cylindrical ride height gauges offered by companies like GHEA provide a small, easy to adjust solution to a vital part of vehicle set-up. However, it is often difficult to put underneath a vehicles’ chassis and remove it without bumping the car with your hand. Any contact with the vehicle when trying to measure ride height will ruin the accuracy of your measurement. The VSR Products ride height gauge handle has a opening where the GHEA gauge can press into from the top, providing a handle that makes it easy to consistently check your ride height.
