Guys, I'm looking for more forward bite out of my metric (Regal) IMCA Stockcar. I've been told 2 different things to modify on the rear suspension to increase the bite. 1) Shorten the length of the upper control arms. 2) Raise mounting point on rearend of upper arms.

Shortening the uppers is easy to do, just hack up another pair of arms. How much would you shorten? I was told 1/4".

Raising the mount point isn't that easy. Would involve cutting the mounts off the rearend and re-welding them higher. It'd make going back to square one a lot harder.

Opinions?

Thanks.
