I have a dw8 2-link with short bars and plugs both sides. Both sliders in front of rear. Will be running a class where you must run min. 19 inch bars and solid third link. Need help on where a good starting point would be.

That is the same setup that I run on my DW. Except my rr spring is on top of the rear end, which was one of the best things i did for the car. Putting the spring on top, instead of in front or behind, to me, just made the car feel much more stable and predictable in the corners. As far as springs I run lf 650, rf 750, lr 225, rr 200. With the a spring bar I run as much angle as I can get, so I dont know about a solid bar. And I run the j bar in the center of the pinion, with about 4.5 inches of split to the frame side. Rear percent comes in around 58%, and cross varies, usually 50.5 give or take.
