I need a little help setting up my 1982 monte carlo. The track is a high banked 3\8
mile and tight corners.

try running on springs, r/f 1200, lf 1000, 250 on both rears, as far as shocks i have been running carrera street stock shocks but am now running bilistein shocks( much better) as far as air presure right side 14 pounds, without beadlock, if you can run beadlocks drop each tire 2 pounds. lr 12 pounds, lf 10 pounds. as far as offset wheels, run 3 or 4 inch offset every where until it goes dry slick and then run a 2 or 3 inch offset on the right rear. this is just a starting point. you have to start some where and find what you like. look at some of the other guys at your track and see what they are running and ask questions you will find many different answers but most will be honest. good luck and where do you race at? street stock c17 charlie norris

If you can get it scaled, that would be a big plus too. either by yourself or someone helping you with their scales.
