What is a good all around set up for a DW8 three link? Trailing arm lengths, spring rates and locations, on top, eliminators etc. Tracks are 3/8 and 1/4 semi bamked.Thanks

Here's what we got: 2001 DW-8
Short 2-link, Bars are 12.5" center of heims,(9" tubes)
LR-top hole
RR-middle hole
J-bar (tacky or rough track)or short panhard bar (smooth dry slick), 8" up on chassis mount, second hole from bottom on pinion mount. Springs: LF-650, RF-750, LR-200, RR-175
LR in front of rearend, RR behind (on sliders).
Shocks: Bilteins-LF-40/40, RF-30/50, LR-30/30, RR- 40/40 on tacky track, 30/30, or 20/20 dryslick.
Pulbar: we have to run a spec biscuit bar in our b-mod class & it doesn't work that great. A sping pullbar works alot better.
Scale info: cross:50-51%, Left: 51-52%, Rear: 58-60%
We run around 50# of LR bite
Ride heights: LF-5&1/4", RF-5&1/2",LR-5&1/2", RR-5&3/4".
We run on a 3/8 semi banked track also.
Hope this helps.

goto and start with their basic setup, it'll get you close then you can adjust from there.

That's where we started & it was pretty close.
