Racer,
I can't find a link to your springs on the site..do you use a 10 or a 12 inch spring?? I see alot of our comptetition going to the 10 inch coil..Other than weight is there any advantage???Can you PM me a price list??
Thanks

Racerwilson where did you say you could find the way to convert bar rates to a coil spring rates having a new car built 4 coil low rod trying convert what iam running now to coil rates also do you know if using a 5 degree torque arm set up is better than a 0 some guys say that it will help the car on a dry track thanks Bill

Bill go to www.proshocks.com find calculater for bars. You may need to use double coils to get rate as soft as a bar rate and still have enogh travel. The 0 deg arms will give you better bite on dry slick tracks. See post on pinion angle.
