What is the car doing? From your percentages, I would think it would be rolling quite a bit, maybe a little tight on entry and loose on exit. Am I right?

little tight does need more exit bite thats where i usually loose ground.

If you will add a little cross, it will take some of the RR bite out and enter easier and exit a little harder.

Hope this helps.

IS YOUR LR SPRING IN FRONT AND YOUR RR IN THE REAR? IF NOT THIS WILL CORRECT THE ABOVE. THIS IS A REALLY POPULAR SET-UP. ALSO THE PANHARD IS REALLY IMPORTANT! J-BAR, LONG REAR, OR SHORT FRONT? THE LONG ONE DOESN'T NEED MUCH ANGLE, CENTER OF AXLE MAYBE 2" DIFFERENCE AT THE FRAME, THE J-BAR LIKES IT LOW ON PINION AND AROUND 3-4" DIFFERENCE AND THE LEFT PINION - LEFT FRAME
STRAIGHT ONE WORKS WELL LOW ON PINION WITH 6-8" DIFFERENCE. 150#+ LR IS A GOOD STARTING POINT!
