My buddy is building a fwd 4-cyl and we were wondering how to scale it? Such as what percentages do you want per tire? We are running a 89 cavilier. Any help would be great. Thanks Bub

I can't help with the scaling question but I've also got an 89 Cavalier. What engine are you running? ANy work done to it?

Nope no work done to it, I believe its a 2.2 but not positive. Come on somebody has to know something about scaling a FWD car.

All the weight you can get on the left front wont be too much. Left side is good too. Use stock springs on the left. Double their rate on both right sides. Lose the sway bar on both ends of the car. Have some camber on the left front - top leaned out. 3 degrees is okay. All this works best if using a locked differential. Have little or no rear brakes.
