Hey guys, Iím building a street stock for a high banked 1/3 mile clay dirt track. I am new to the street stocks and have no ideal about the setup. I have a 1985 Monte Carlo. The only things I have done besides the cage is remove the front and rear sway bars. I will be running a 350 with a 350 turbo Trans and stock rear end. I can run any gear ratio I want. Can you guys please help me with a setup that will be a good starting point? I have to run stock OEM type chassis parts. The biggest question I have is about springs and stock type racing shocks. Also I have read about using Nova lower A arms and running two left side upper A arms. I donít want to throw a lot of things at once before the car hits the track. Thanks in advance for any help.

more then likley if you have to use stock parts the nova lowers won't fly even tho they are stock .95% of the time they want stock for make and model. don't worry about the uppers either you'll just chase your tail 1000's of guys do just fine with stock the way they came on the car .get yourself some stock appearing racing springs 11 in fronts and 12 or 13 in rear 12-1100rf 1000-900lf 250-200lr 225-175rr,shocks get the bilstein stock mounts for metrics, gears that depends on the tire rollout not the size that doesn't tell us anything we need the rollout and what rpm range you are looking for to give you a good start point for that
