99 Terminator rear suspension is the IMCA legal suspension option. I believe the other suspension "package" isn't IMCA legal.

Stock spring position over axle is IMCA legal, some of the early cars of termintaors had the springs mounted ahead of the axle in a non stock position. Also have known of some that were too short of wheelbase as well.

I believe the early Terminators had one spring in front of the rearend centerline, and one spring behind. My brand new Terminator has both springs shifted slightly forward of that centerline.

And the IMCA rule is that 50% of the spring must be over the rearend axle tube. Not necessarily in the stock location.
