What are some of the advantages or disadvantages of a mono leaf setup over a stack leaf or vise versa. I have an older chassis that is a mono leaf right now but i've been thinking of trying a stack leaf setup. Any info would be appreciated.

I've tried both setups,ths stacked leafs were more consistant and lasted much longer.Plus the stacked leafs seem to hook up better off the corner.I've tried Camaro and Chrysler,did'nt notice much difference.Be sure to put your shocks, left in front and right behind the axle about 3 inches.

you would want a mono on the right and a stack leaf on the left. 20231 Afco left leaf and a 20242 mono on the right. You will also need a coilover on the rear of the right rear. Approx. 175-200lb.

well right now I have a slider and a shock on it. Will it make that much difference to switch to a coilover??

Left in front 3" in front controls spring wrap up to allow the left rear to hook up smoother.Right rear behind 3" controls axle unloading on corner entry.If possible mount them 4-6" below the bottom of the axle tube.I also ran an 1 1/2 ajustable lowering block on the left side.This allows for squaring the rear and also moves the rear roll center slightly to the left to help the chassis roll to the right for better side bite.
