What kind of setup do you have on your coilovers (placement), 90/10, panhard/j-bar, offsets and weights?

It looks like the J-bar needs to be raised a lot more, and the offsets on the right side can be moved in a little, like a 3 or 4" offset would help. You can also increase the angle on the 90/10 on the front,where it angles up from the rear more. That will play with the chassis more on braking. Taking rear brake out will help too. Also, move the 90/10 shock as far left(driverside) as you can, this will make the rear twist to the inside a bit, and will help even more. Where was the RR coilover?

hey rat racer i have a 97 Shaw try switching your lf and rf around try putting a softer spring on the right rear maybe try a 300 on the left rear. Try putting your panard bar mount on the left side of the yoke on the rear end and use a straight panhard bar. This should help with getting more bite it did my car.
