Have a new mod built by a local chassis builder around here. it is a z-link on a metric clip. I am just curios what a good base setup would be as far as springs front and rear. trailing arm angle and j bar angle. the lower trailing arms are 15 1/2 inches center to center(not swing arms) and rear arms are 18 1/2 inches long. Also the rr spring is in front of birdcage and left rear is clamped on housing. it also has a spring pull bar with a progressive afco spring. Jammin or custom any help would be awesome thanks.

850 lf and 950 rf 250 lr and 200 rr springs to start. 5deg up for lowers and 5 deg down for uppers to start. Panhard or j bar 5-10 deg downhill to right. Pullbar start with it centered in chassis. Should be a good place to start for small metric.
