I just restubbed a Jigalo LM chassis with a '75 Chevelle clip. Rear suspension will be stack leaf both sides. This car will be run as an e-mod w/2500# min. weight. My question is, what should my ride heights be? I've looked over the archives and can find no info on these frames. With the lower a-arms just past parallel, ride height at the front is roughly 8". Also, any chassis builders out there that use this clip?

with the stacked leaf springs i would think the ride hieght is about right.need a high roll center with the leafs to get the car to roll-over and create side bite,and to get those leafs to wrap up,you can raise the front eyes of the leafs to create forward bite also.we would raise only the right rear eye..this gives you cross,and helps side bite
