increase rear% to about 58, you'll have to decrease LR weight because more rear% will tighten car up but will increase forward bite, i have same rear suspension u do except my springs are on top of rearend. I run 40# LR and 59.2% rear. I started out with no lead and had 55% rear, car had no forward bite, i increased it to 57%, helped it out some but was still lacking so i put more lead on and got it up to 59% and its a rocket ship coming off!!!

more rear percent...your car sounds heavy to me..take any weight you can of the front of your car and lighten things up if possible..drop the lr percent some.about 53% is good....about 50 to 100#'s lr bite...move rr arm to middle hole, lr arm leave in top...i had both springs on top of rearend..200 lr 150 rr...had the lr in front but wouldnt hook up on dry so moved to top for feature..and the track waz dry...and it felt like it waz going to hook up great coming did hook up pretty good..but totalled the car last sat night..maybe this help waz a dw7 3link.
