i know this is mod tech,but i thought you guys would have more ideas since your used to working on this .the question is how and what can be done for forward bite on imca type stock cars.one for instance is the guy that builds terminator chassis,when he is on the gas the lr corner raises up& it rolls over to the rr,then when he lets off you can see it drop. its not as evident as a modified,but more than the average stock car.is this being done with soft springs on the rear,stiff front,shocks? thanks for your help!

The left rear has a Custom Leaf Sping on it.
It has the front half of the sping Very stiff so that under acceleration the axel torque lifts the car. "the back half of the spring is soft". the RR is most likely around a 175# (extra soft to help add axel wrap) and the LR will work like a 200# leaf unit. (To get you started take a heavy leaf off of another set and cut the back off behind the lowering block and add that leaf to the left rear you have now.
extra info. Keep the arch in your springs when they sag they don't work as well.
My 2 cents ex-stockcar driver.
