id get a little more cross, and drop air pressures on rear..what tires do you run, and are beadlocks allowed? also what final drive is in the car?

WILL DROPPING THE LEFT REAR TIRE PRESSURE TIGHTEN OR LOOSEN THE CAR COMING OFF THE TURNS?

i had a 80 malibu when i sold it the guy put it on the scales and said no way i was driving it. rear percentage was at 39% i loved it..lose is 200% better than being tight

try the air before you add unneeded weight..

i agree with racer17j loose front end weight remember fenders and hood don't hold the car together
