Want to pass this by you guys. Full Size GM Street Stock. Driveshaft angle 3 degrees down to rear. Pinion level. Rear Lower control arms are level. Rear Upper arms are 13 degrees down to front. We're about two weeks away from hitting the track with this new chassis. We're not supposed to move the chassis mounting points, so I'm not confident I can do much with the upper arms angle.
If you all have any comments based on your experience, I'd really appreciate it.

The downward angle in the top arms should help with bite. They will act sort of like a pullbar in a mod. As the rearend rotates they will try to lift the chassis. I know guys that try to put angle down in the top bars and up in the bottom bars. You cant get much with stock components and locations but take what you can get.
