i am running a leaf spring car with 54% rear weight and i am having trouble getting the car to hook up coming out and is just loose all over but in the open where you can drive it in hard it seems to work. just wondering if anybody has any ideas on spring rates and shocks to use. track is dry slick in the features most every night. Thanks for any help in advance.

R.R.=200
WITH PAIR OF MEDIUM SHOCKS ACROSS BACK, I
PREFER AFCO MYSELF..(WORKS FOR ME)
TIGHTEN IT UP A LITTLE BY DROPPING REAR STAGGERS. I LIKE TO START OUT AROUND 2-2.5 INCHES IN BACK, 1 INCH FRONT. HOPE THIS HELPS!!
