Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever tried or thought about running there springs behind the rear end on the two link with the stiffer spring on the right. I would like to hear what some of you think on this theory.

i did this one time.. last year.. for me it waz like the car waz on air.. i had the stiff on the left.. i moved the left spring to the front at the track.. before the heat race.. i think it might work if you had both really soft springs and shocks.. and alot of rear percent.. the one thing i think it does do is get the springs out of the way of rear end wrap.. so your pull bar works without the springs getting in the way.. but there is not as much load on the springs when they are that far back on the chassis.. therfore softer springs may be needed.. im sure someone knows more about this than i do.. i think staggered, or one on top and one in front is best.. for a 2 or 3 link..

I have thought about this.....do you guys think that it would be possible to run this setup on a really rough track? They always say to lighten your springs up on a rougher track so that you can somewhat float over the bumps. Do you think that this would work on it since your decreasing your spring rate on throttle and increasing bite during braking?

Have you thought about why a stiffer right rear?
