i found a pretty good deal on a roller was wondering if anybody had tried the rear setup it has on it it's suposed to be a peirce copy metric stub and the rear has mono leaf and coil on slider behind the rear end on the right side and multi leaf on the left it also has a lift bar on it. this will be for a 360 cid 9-1 comp limited mod class. track usully gets pretty slick and rough latley was thinking of maybe goin one way or the other on it make it the same on bolth side unless somebody can convince me that this will work for what i'm using it for

17j, that's nearly the Racemart FR-1 suspension. The only difference is they put the RR coil on top of the housing with just a weight jack. This is what I had on my car last year and was fast. Running 9.0:1 motors will save on springs. If you buy it, run it the way it is. The leafs are more consistent in the rough than a link car and that lets you run the holes where the moisture is. Keep track of your ride heights and watch the mono for inconsistent arch in front of the rear-end, it will twist just in front of the u-bolts on the axle tube making it look like you are giving it 800 lbs. of torque while its just sitting there not running.

Good luck,
