you sometimes find things out on accident. I was involved in an wreck in my heat race that tore the front sheetmetal off of my car lastnight (both fenders and nose) and knocked the toe out 4 inches we jacked the front of the car up to inspect and repair. when we let the car down i did not make sure the right front spring was in place over the adjustable cup, it was cocked under it causing the ride height to be alot more than it should have been. I did not know or even think about any of this until coming out of turn 4 about 7 laps into the feature, I felt the spring go back into place and heard it pop when it settled. the car handled GREAT until this point, Then all of a sudden it got really loose going in. so i figured out that i need to do something to the right front spring. but what? stiffer spring, or taller spring with the same rate? What do yall think?

I would have to say same spring just put water pump pulleys with the center cut out to set the level you need or want. Just tack weld the pulley on the spring so its easy to change.

no need for the watter pump pully we run adjustable cups. maybe i should have said in my earlier post screw it down, instead of taller spring.

Oh ok well it looks like you need to put the ride height like a 1" or so higher on that side it gave you more left rear and kept you from being loose. Goodluck and good racing
