Up on outside will tighten car-up on inside will loosen. But I dunno-I think there may be more to it than that.

ran 100 lap race sat night after about 15 lap it got looser and looser.car is pretty good for our normal 8 lap mains. car owner is determined to "make it right"and has the right rear leaf on his mind i just wanted to confirm my thinkings on what the adjustments were gonna do

ya thats sounds about right next time on your break that most guys don't think of is set your air pressures back to where you started or even a little lowe rthen you started at just see how much you gain and try to compinsate for it
