What are your springs rates,weight percentages and ride heights?Also where and how are your rear springs mounted?I run a coil mono setup also.Do you run a pullbar and a 90/10 shock?

Your setup calculates out to a heavy lr.You need to even up front springs to 750#.I would try a 225#lr and a175#rr.Run lr in front as Jammin suggested.Trail lr 1/4"-1/2" at ride height.Ride height lf 5",lr 5 1/2",rf 5 1/2",rr6".Check pullbar travel,it needs to be2"-2 1/2".Start with cross at51 1/2 to 52%.You may also need to take some gear out.Make sure the mono's do not have any preload on them at ride height.

At race ride height ,you should be able to remove the rear leaf bolts and the spring should not have any weight on it.Also the pullbar should not have any preload on the front half of the spring,as in wrapping it up or pushing it down.

Thanks Lyon. I would love to win a main this year. It would be a dream come true because this is my rookie year in the modified div. I am also not looking to bad in the points. Thanks to everybodys help and finishing third in the main last week I am now in fourth in points and only one point out of third. I just cant belive how much better the car drove this last week. I would also like to wish you the best of luck this year Lyon racing.
