Author Topic:   9 in ford in a leaf spring car
posted June 30, 2003 04:12 PM
After 15 years of setting in the stands I finally broke down and bought a steet stock. I run a leaf spring Camero with a 9in. ford rearend. My question is should I be running a pullbar from the rearend to the chassis for pinion angle? If so what is a good stating point to set it at? I am having trouble getting off the corners, will this help? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

don't run a pullbar with leaf springs unless the housing is floated. try a 90-10 shock mounted on top of the rearend at a 5-10 degree angle with the front mount uphill. 6-8 degrees of pinion angle should be fine. it should be done by moving the perches. i've tried running more pinion angle but 6-8 is where i always go back.
