They are working good here for guys with 3300-3400 lb cars.

A couple have broke from crashes.

my main concern would be if you could even get ride ht, with a 4.5 arch??

Heres another company who makes them, for 200 each I believe and theyll make them for your situation, possibly more arch?

I ran into a guy at the track last nite and he had what looked like adjustable rear shackles on his. I too was concerned with the lack of arch versus ride height. He was'nt sure what rate he had, but thought they might be 200# straight-up. He was hookin up hard on a glazed over track. We went backwards this week because I went too stiff on the LR spring(225) and don't know what the right rear is(probably 225# or 200#). The car did'nt roll over on the RR like it did last week. I moved some lead over to the RR, and put a softer shock on that corner, too. Any suggestions for dryslick?

my brother got side swiped and both his composite springs splintered into a million pieces. He's had worse wrecks now and his steal afco ones held up fine.


He was fast on the hypers but we did notice a lower ride height too.
