With the rear springs staggered lr in front and rr behind or on top you gain cross under acceleration as the rearend is rotating. I like my 3 link with the lr in front and rr behind with a short j bar and a long pullbar.

The spring placement like this can make the car a bit looser going in but sure makes the car drive off the corners harder.

What would it do if you ran springs on top of the rearend and put shorter lower links on?

I havent tryed short bars yet but i did have the springs on top of the rear with the longer bars and didnt feel it was very good. I ran 20 inch bars before and now run 22 inch bars with staggered springs.

old racer - we do the same type of thing on our car. 14" on LR and 18" on RR. what angle do you run your bars at? our car is pretty good at the moment, but it's always good to hear what others are doing. we run 10(LR)and 5(RR) degress on ours. do you level out the RR when the track goes slick?

thanks...

I run them both at 10 degrees if the track is real heavy and raise the LR to 15 degrees and level the RR when the track is black and slick. Car has a lot of LR drive off the turn and the additional roll steer makes it close to 4bar through the center. I still prefer the 4 bar but this is close with a lot less maintenace.
Good Luck
