I don't have my scaling num in front of me from when I ran a straight up 4-bar, but some things I do remember is I ran 50 lb split in the front with the rt front heavy. The lf rear was only 130lb split. Rt rear upper bar was 17 degree up lower between 0 - 5 degree neg, Lf rear 14 degree up on uppers and lowers between +5 - -5 depending on track conditions. With a J-bar.

If you are running 4-link and z-link, this is a good starting stop. I learned everything from trail and error with this set up. I run all my suspension clamped up. Lf rear the spring is in front of the rear end, the Rt is behind. What this does is the more your on the gas the more bite you will get so to say. Run the front lower bar on the z-link at 0 to +5 up and top rear bar level. The lt rear you want your split no more than 80 degree split, the reason behind this is with the spring in front on the lf your split will increase when on the gas if you run to much split in the rear the car will have a huge PUSH in the center of the corner. As far as the rt having a stiffer spring Ithink you'll be alright because you want the car to roll over on the rt rear, this helps it turn. I think you'll love this set up. Anyother questions I'd be glad to help!
