just bought a camaroalways run metrics price was right turn key just gonna re skin basically was jus buying for drive train and extra parts but wanna run it and learn how to make the leaf car work i dont know much about them. my first question is the front of the spring has an adjustable mount on the frame like a mod like four holes and both sides are on lowest holes what would i expect to get by moving up on or the other seems like it would lower that side of car maybe alloing to roll or preventing from rolling depending on which side you raise. lr wouldslow the roll and rr up and lr down would increse roll am i lost or what? thanks also car seems to sit to low in rear compare to front that could be changed by smaller blocks between akle and spring right?

Yes,use the lowering blocks to change your rear ride heights. Raising the front eyes will increase anti-squat (and create brake hop at the extreme)..... manipulating the front eye locations can also introduce roll-steer. Manipulating the front eyes will not have any significant effect on roll resistance (and should not be monkeyed with for that purpose).

The car's previous owner should be able to fill you in on what they liked under what conditions.
