I am thinking about changing rear spring location and eliminating the slider on my DW8 three link over the winter.
What are the best locations? (over rear, ahead or behind and why)
Thanks John

I think most agree that mounting the left spring in front of the axle and the right spring on top is the best way. When you get on the gas this will plant the left rear a little more. I tried the right rear behind the axle thinking that it would really help plant the left rear by unloading the right rear but I think I had less bite that way. I guess the right rear wasn't working much that way.
