First year w/ DW-9 heard they were hard to get hooked up, looking for suggestion. Car has 4-bar LR, Z-link RR w/ coil-overs. Has plugs built in LR and RR, to shorten lower bars. What length bars do you run and where should coil overs be located. What kind of shock package should a guy use. Car is ran on 1/4 mile track. Thanks.

Usually heavy for heat and dry by the feature.

Have you run a 4bar car before? If so how did you run the springs in it, clamped or floated?

I would prob try LR spring clamped in front, RR spring in front on the BC if you can. I'd stay with the bar lengths the car came with, should be about 16.5" upper and 14.5" lower. start LR upper about 18-20degrees and LR lower 0-5 degrees up. Right side pretty much level. 75 shocks in front 94 in rear. short panhard bar w/. about 3" rake.

Thanks for input. I have never ran a 4-bar LR Z-link RR before. The car has plugs in lr and rr, bars are short both sides. I didnt now w/ coil-overs were to run springs.

Also you could run both springs clamped in front of the housing. Might make it easier to tune starting out. Pretty much a 2 link spring setup but tunability of 4 links.
