I have a 2002 DW-9 4 bar. Was thinking of going to a 4 bar LR and a Z link RR. Rear bars are 14 1/2" top, 12 1/2" bottom. Spring behind rear end on LR, In front on RR.
LF 750 RF 850
LR 200 RR 175
What should the bar lengths be on the RR if switched over to Z link?
What kind of angle should the bars be at?
Do I need to soften or stiffen the RR spring?
Should I mount the spring on top of the rearend on the RR or leave it in front of the rearend on the birdcages?
Should I switch the RR bottom bar over to a swing arm?
Sorry for so many questions but I run pretty well on straight up 4 bar but think the car could be faster.

you should be able to call dw and get the mounts to change it over, and depending on where you put the spring is how you find spring rate, on top of the axle would be less spring, we run a 250 on the lr, and 225 on the rr with the spring on the swingarm, hope this helps a little
