Ride height for a long travel

My new rhino sits stink bug and looks goofy. The ground clearance in the rear is just under 16" and the front is right at 11 1/2". What should it be sitting at? It's an 07 with LSR XTR 6.5" long travel with Elka Elites, Eibach springs 250# in front and 350# in the rear. I'm going to be putting a Full Potential cage with seats in the rear. This is my first long travel so any help is appreciated.

The SHOCKER!! I love it. It sits higher in the rear than the front. Like a stink bug when it's about to spray you.

If your going to be putting a four seat cage and a rear seat... I would say leave as it is for now untill you get these items put on. I have 450# in the rear on my 4 seater and it rides fairly level. The heavier springs help support the added weight.



NIIICE!
