What are some things that i can try to get some more sidebite on a three link. When it gets real slick the car wont stay under me. I have 700lf 800rf 175lr 175rr I have about 2 1/2inches of rake in the pannard bar and it is in the second hole down on the pinion. I have about 60lbs of left rear. The left rear bar is up 10degrees the right rear is up 5 degrees. The pannard bar is only about 15" long with the heims. would you try to put more angle in it. if so how much. what about maybe stiffen the rf spring. Please help anyone I am tired of looking like a pig on skates.

for sidebite you could soften rt side springs and lower the panhard at the pinion,i assume it's chassis mtd at the left also raise your center of mass heigth if possible. these things will help in any combination. gl jl

I'd soften the right front(decrease spring rate by 50 lbs.)lets the car roll more onto the right side tires, and stiffen the left rear(increase spring rate by 25 lbs.mount 50 lbs.above the right rear tire and just behind it if you can.move the right rear tire in for dry this will help the weight of the chassis to be more over the tire and create more sidebite.If the car is to tight on entry after you make these changes, put some more crossweight in the chassis by using the weight jacks or slider adjusters,this will loosen the entry and tighten your exit.hope these suggestions help good luck,littleman

lower the panhard bar on both ends and add weight as high in the chassis as you can. this will make the car roll over harder on the right rear and help stick it to the ground.
