my car is a short swing arm setup and i just cant get the car to get any left side bite. it gets up on the bars real bad, tops out the lr shock (4 1/2" extension) and just spins on the right rear. it just rolls over and stays there. i was thinking about going from a 15" shorty bar to a 21" jbar. will this tame it down or should i take some angle out of the lr swing arm or both??? i've went from 275# rr to 400# rr and still have the same shock compression!! i think this is because i can just get it into the corner a little harder but from the middle out it just got worse.

that panhard bar change will calm the car down. I would try that first if you have a j-bar laying around, but if you have to go buy one, then I would probably try the bar angle first.
