I haven't been able to get good side bite all year. Only 2" of shock compression travel on RR. I've been all over on shock and spring combos and finally hit on a combination that worked. See the pic attached (from Jeff Eissing-Motorsports Photographer)that demonstrates the body roll I've been able to achieve.

Driver untouched (other than pride). Lost rear end housing, 1 axle, wheel, tire, 2 rear shocks, all four trailing arms, and driveshaft. The rest was cosmetic, sheet metal and replaced some bars. Oddly enough, we did not find any damage to the front suspension. Sat our one week and been racing every week since.

Personally, I'd go back to the 2" thing!
