I see alot of these dirt late models with alot of chassis lift, and carrying the left front high off the track. Do they change set up to do this(J-bar angle, or length) or what?

Yes- a lot of it has to do with panhard bar angle and length-. A shorter bar and higher angle.

Hey LM199 how about clamping off the left rear birdcage? If so how do they clamp it off, and should you run more roll steer in the car?

Place the left rear coilover behind the axle. They've got the sportsman car doing it around here now at 2900lbs.

How do they have the rear end setup on those cars?

4 Link------It seems to work best with the shock behind on the LR, but still not a lot of chassis lift, and driving that LR into the ground.

That's right- but don't forget you need forward bite- the less wheel spin you have the better.
