I am building a 86 grand marquis 2door unshorted chasis hobby stock. I don't know much about race car setups so anything is helpful, ride highth, spring rates, etc. My track is a 1/8 high bank oval. My car has a 351 cleveland 2brl and a c-4 trans, I left the 8.8 rear in. I am unsure of the car weight as of right now but the minimum it can be is 3200lbs. Any info that could help me is great. Thanks

don't know much about the cr vics and marquis I run an old 77 ltd frame.That motor is heavy and will make a challenge to get you car balanced out good so it isn't nose heavy.The ford frames and rear axles tend to be a little heaveir than gm parts.
