I bought a car from a guy that didnt know what the ride heights were on his car. I've heard theres a certain angle you want on your upper control arms and that would help you get your heights in the front. Is that correct and if so what angles do you normally want?

Hard to go by upper angle as this will be different depending on what type mounts, spindle height, and ball joints...etc...
Measure the RF front lower control arm front bolt and the center of the pivot ball on the ball joint. Ball joint should be about 1/2" higher than inner pivot point. I set my LF around 1/4" lower and rear of car 1" higher than RF.
