Gotta question about lift arm set ups?

Anyone ever run a lift arm with a 5th coil, and no 6th coil? instead of the 6th coil, i want to try a rubber snubber under the arm for pinion angle adjustments and cushioning of the braking forces. See any problems with this set up?

Also i plan to run a 90/10 shock over the rear end, at a 5* uphill angle, to help dampen the reaction of decelerating.

Hopefully it will loosen the car up going in abit, and cut down on over all weight. Any holes in my theory that you all could see?

Thanks in advance, Krom

Mine pulls on a rubber biscuit with a chain but I think it would work the same if the rubber was the same. I also have the shock.

Did you notice any differences in handling with or without the rubber and / or the shock?

Currently running a 6th coil, but i think it overly complicates the lift arm and want to simplify things abit.

you can put on a 9010 and put on a chain, that is what alot of late models too, it will free up entry alot.

We run a 90/10 on the coil over for the 5th coil and run an AFCO Part #20472 with a chain to the front of the bar.
I doubt you could put anything under the bar due to the massive amount of movement. I know the locating link keeps it a working plane but it is not a straight and the piviot for the bar is the front of the bar so It could come off of a snubber under it.
We did run a rubber biscuit in a setup like the AFCO unit we made with a weight bracket, some flat bar and a bolt and washer, but the idea was exactly the same.

The only other way I've tried it is with a shock on top of the rear end and on the lift arm. If I remember right that tightened the car on entry but the tech guy said I could only have 5 shocks on the car. My car has always been loose into the corner.
