Excellent reference, thanks for the link.

But what does he mean by "droop"?

Droop: Vertical movement of wheel down from chassis. aka rebound.  In racing, the terms 'bump and droop" are used together to define suspension travel; in industry, "jounce and rebound". [bump, jounce]

Thanks, John. Great find.

Thanks for this John. I'm slowly getting used to the '67s.

Thanks, that's what I surmised.  Thirty years on the track and I'd not run into that term.
