i run a short bar with about 12.5 degrees of angle and the roll center of the car is about where the spring is mounted on the left side. question is when i get to the apex of the turn and feed the throttle i get so much foward bite the left rear spring is unloaded and not in use. the car still works because as it gets the anti-sqwat the rear end gets pos. steer so its not tight, but i have read where going over 100% lift is actually bad for the car. also if the left rear is unloaded does it even make a differance if i put 20lbs. of left rear or 100lbs? any insight would be greatly app.

sound like the typical 3 wheel set up do you like it and can you control it?? if you answer yes to these ??? then don't change a thing use the initial bite for entry and don't worry bout exit cause if the spring is unloaded anyhow it should always be the same. just my .02 jlfastride.

the answer for now is yes, the car hooks up and it is controlable i was just a little nervous about the trailing arm holding up the left side and breaking. as far as my ? about left rear weight do you have any insight on that?

well if the lr spring isnt' in use when on the throttle then i shouldn't effect exit just entry by changeing wedge and bite.
