I have an old Jig-a-lo chassis that I am having trouble with the rear set up.It has mono leafs and coil springs.It also has a reese bar and a adjustable bar on rhe top.I can not get the right pinion angle and would like to know how to set this up and any other tips that would be great for this type of rear-end.Also if you know of anyone that I could call to talk to them about this.Thanks,

Stan

If your using the clamp style spring pad's , simply loosen the clamps and the u-bolt's , set the car on the ground at ride height , and rotate the rear end until you get your desired pinion angle . We used to run between 5 and 7 degree's . Also ,I'd throw away the reese bar and use a 5th arm instead .
