I have an 85' Grand Prix pure stock aroud 3100 lbs. The track is (1/2 mi) 12 and 16 degrees. I need help with springs and stock shocks. I have this in mind- LF 1000 / RF 11OO / LR 200/ RR 175 OR LF 1100/ RF 1200/ LR 200/ RR175. I have look at the SUMMIT RACING CAT. at those adjustable shock for $28 each !!

i was thinking about tring those shock too anybody run them yet but anyway i would put more of a split on your front spring or you will get the nose hopping going into the corners i run 1100 and 950 then on the rears 175 is oftley soft on the rr make it super tight try a 25o and if it's to loose switch them around and put it on the lr

Hey Thanks, You told me than most will !!! You never know when "dirt track racer will flip-out" if the questions get to technical !! My bro-n-law and his dad has been racing 30 years, and he'll try to lie "be like, uhhhh you know I really don't know" Hey to all BRO-N-LAWS, if you don't want to tell, be a man about it. AND THAT'S BEFORE I EVER EVEN HAD A CAR, think about now when I'm building one- different class, though. Plus you know "MOTHER-N-LAW DIRT TRACK RACER would give him all the credit for my success, when I've worked and busted up many knuckles during late nights on a dirt car" (wife's sister's hubby)
