You need to soften up all of your springs first of all, For the lf 550, rf 450, lr 250, rr 225 or 200 watch the shock travel especially on the right rear.

Your fifth arm sounds good.

What is your LEFT SIDE WEIGHT, AND CROSS WEIGHT %'S, your rear percentage whould be around 53%.

What is you height of your Panhard bar (rake)??? I would try this if you can on the panhard bar take and raise your panhard bar up one notch and see if the car gets better or worse. If it gets better try moving up one more notch, and see if it gets better or worse, if it get worse in either one of these scenerio's then try lowering the panhard bar one notch.

The panhard bar is very crictical, in the car rolling over like you want it.

What are your front shocks????

Also another thing you can do is go to and they have their setup pages on there.
