The rear of our car just WILL NOT lift and I am not sure what our problem is. Any ideas would be GREAT. DW 2-link Short LR trailing arm @ 10degrees Long RR arm @ 5degrees. J-bar second hole from bottom w/ 2" of rake. Rubber pull bar w/ 3/4" preload @ 19degrees and pinion @ 8degrees. With all the solid pull bar talk, thinking about putting a ton of preload in the pull bar to make it more like a solid bar...think this will work?
Thanks in advance!

dluna,move your left rear trailing arm to the top hole and put as much angle as you can in the pullbar.Soften the rear shocks 40/40's for tacky.30/30 rr for slick 40/10 lr if smooth otherwise a 40/40 lr , 50/30 rr.I wouldn't run that 125 unless the track is real slow and dry, leave the 150 in if your loose in increase rebound on your left front like a 30/40 or 30/50 or if it really slick 30/60!later and good luck
