Whats causing my lf to pull up about 11-16 inches on tacky surfaces. it did it wed, and friday.. yet its still loose on dry.

just to get it out of the way the shock extends 4 inches out so moving it wouldnt take care of the other 8-10 in comes up.

tonight on the tacky end of the track I hit the gas it came up. so i let off, and hit it again and it came right back up.

my rr is traveling down 8-9 inches..

leaf spring nova, imca tires, imca 350 carb.

wouldnt dead leafs, make it push on exit? im pulling them out and rating them tommorrow. they have 3 shows on them.

My rr spring lost 25% of its rating, and the lr lost 12%.

I am replacing the leafs with some 225 landrums for tonight 8-15.

The rr was traveling 9 inches out by the rotor.
