Author Topic:   How can we make it LIFT?
posted August 12, 2002 10:49 AM
The rear of our car just WILL NOT lift and I am not sure what our problem is. Any ideas would be GREAT.
DW 2-link
Short LR trailing arm @ 10degrees
Long RR arm @ 5degrees.
J-bar second hole from bottom w/ 2" of rake.
Rubber pull bar w/ 3/4" preload @ 19degrees and pinion @ 8degrees.

With all the solid pull bar talk, thinking about putting a ton of preload in the pull bar to make it more like a solid bar...think this will work?

Thanks in advance!

Shocks are all Bilstein:
LF: 50/50 RF: 30/50
LR: 50/50 RR: 50/50
Spring rates:
LF: 650 RF: 750
LR: 200(front of axle) RR: 125(on top of axle) - did have a 150 here but was a little loose coming out so we tried 125...didn't really tell much of a difference this weekend.
Weight Dist WITHOUT driver:
Cross: 49.8% Rear: 55.9% Left: 52.5%
