What kind of angle or i should say spit are most guys running? I had about 4" split with my shorty bar and now with the j-bar i have about 7" split....is that to much? The j-bar is 19" (imagine that) and my other bar was 8" so im thinking that if it was ok at 4" split if i double the bar i could double the split and still be ok?? First time with a j-bar ( i went with the southwest speed) and it has the rubbers in it. Thanks, Craig

You'd prob be alright at 8. Keep in mind you can get too much anlge in a jbar just like a short bar. The more angle you have the more you will load the rearend with the bar. The less angle the more you load it through the springs.
