Looking for info on how long of pull bar works best?I have seen them as short as the 90/10 above it, and have seen some go clear to the rear of the trans.I'm thinking the long one would do a wheelie easier?

Yes i use the long pullbar about 42" long. Shorter will react faster and roll over on the rr but can be a bit too eratic at times. Make it as long as you can fit into chassis close to 42".

As a rule of thumb, should'nt your pullbar be roughly twice as long as your lower trailing arms? Something about instant center, I believe.

Sounds like the same rules appl;y to a pull bar as a lift bar?
Is this for the most part true?I am also wondering what spring rate????
And does it make a difference if it is in the center of the rear-end or off the one side?ALso what about the angle???More the better?
