Base guide lines for question - 76 Camaro leaf, 3000# w/ driver, 3/8 mile clay.

Assuming ride height and left % wgt, rear % wgt and cross are in the ball question is this:

In which order are the following track adjustments more effective (dramatic)? Another words which ones make the most difference vs which ones make the least (more sutle) difference:

1. Tire Stagger
2. Wheel Offset
3. Tire pressure
4. Weight jacks (front only)_(x-wght)
5. Adjustable rear shakles
6. ? Are there any other track adjustments?

I would go 4-2-5 but yeah either way that will get you close.

I'f all of your % are close,then I would start with stagger,or on a leaf spring car you can adjust rear wedge with lowering blocks.I would use wheel offset and tire pressure to fine tune.I also agree with bobaluuu,that the driver has to be able to adjust to track conditions.
