Anyone running them?

if so what total wt, what rear wt?

how are they holding up? I like the idea of losing 40-50 lbs of the unsprung, but not if they dont last at all.

I am running landrum 225 multis now. and just bought afco xhds to try next.

I ran a set last year and I don't think I'll be buying another set. I normally run 200 multi leafs but with the monos I went with 220's. They worked well but I only got ten nights out of them. Hope this helps and good luck.

what are your rear wts?

how many nights are you getting out of multis. Im looking at 4-6 tops right now, 10 sounds good.

3200 lb. car 50% rear. I've used the landrum multis for 15-20 nights before feeling any difference. I also noticed that the parabolics allow a lot of wrap up. I had to increase pinion angle and move the shocks because of the movement the springs allowed. I've been thinking of tryin a multi left rear and a mono right rear and see what happens.

No!! the mono will NOT hold the weight of the car they are only rated at like 60-75 lbs. You guys could try the fastboys setup and see how you like it. I run IMCA mods and I am currently building a Camaro street stock car using the fast boys setup multileafs on both sides, don't know how it will work but I'll let ya' know when I try it.

Ours is on a mod but at our track it would be legal in street as it seems to be like an outlaw class.A few years ago we ran the thick monos, I think around a 200 rate on our street stock. Hooked up good but they didn't last long at all.
