Anybody running a 90/10 damper shock with leaf springs. It will be mounted on top of the diff and forward to the cage (with a slight upward angle). It is on a A-body dodge (dart), but we can pretend it is on a camaro or nova for all you chevy guys, LOL. Seiously though what handling changes will occur? I expect it to loosen up under braking/coasting anything else?
Thanks in advance

Are you trying to get forward bite on a dry slick 1/4 3/8 track?

The reason I asked that is if you are? Do you think you can run a floater on your passenger side leaf spring seat?

Yes we a hoping for more bite too. If we put a floater on the left rear that will allow more axle rotatotin under acceleration. Which would be like putting a softer spring in a third link, correct?

I'm talking about floating the passenger side rear and leaving the driver's side clamped.

It will reduce axle wrap under braking. thats it nothing more.

If your hard on the brakes and your car hops without it then it will smooth that out for you.

It will extend the life of leafs.

5-7 degrees uphill, towards front of car, and 8-12 inches above the axle centerline for the rear mount.
