1965 Rambler American ride height.

we have a 1965 Rambler American convertible with the 327 c.i.d. engine we have been restoring. Can anyone tell us what the ride height should be, and where to measure it? I'm guessing the front springs are sagging, but have no way to confirm it. The right side tie rod has been rubbing against the idler arm, and put a deep groove into the tie rod. I suspect this is from the springs sagging, but don't want to just start blindly replacing parts. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

I did look in the factory manual, but couldn't find it. I will do some more looking.

Could be in the frame or suspension sections.
