I have one of the older underslung Shaw modifieds (1992). Jammin helped me with some recommendations that improved my forward bite by moving the RR spring behind the axle. My car is still tight just after turn entry into the middle. The car is a 3 link with a torque arm and long panhard bar. My springs are LF-650, RF-700, LR-225, and RR-200. I have been running Bilstein digressive shocks, 6010 all the way around. I was thinking about either increasing the RF spring to keep the car from possibly having a soft push, or possibly taking some of the rebound out of the RR shock. I was also considering trying to induce more rear steer which would help on entry and exit, but not sure how to do this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What angle was that RR trailing arm at Chad?

The angle on the RR was 3.5 with me in the car and the angle on the LR was 5. Also I failed to mention the %'s on the car. 54% left, 57-59% rear, and 53.5% cross. Also, I am running 1.5-2" rear stagger. What do you think about bumping up the stagger a little bit more? I was just reading another tech forum and the guy posting some info mentioned that his car pinned the RR and caused the front end to have a severe push. Sounds a lot like what mine is doing.

Much of that is in driving style too.... Try lowering the panhard bar just a little, that should help you some on your setup.
