Re: Big Block Chevy Build

Re: Help with rear coil selection

Rear coil-over springs will fit the stock gbody spring buckets.If it were mine I would try a 12" 130- 150lbs or a 14"110-130lbs, depending on weight and the ride height you want. Malibu racing .com has a suspension tech section also. There is some good info here: http://www.maliburacing.com/forum/vi...

Re: Front shimmy on touchdown

We have an '85 firebird & 75 nova that had the same problem. We added a "shimmie" shock that helped tremendously. It's kinda 4 wheel drive technology, but works.

Raise front air pressure
Raise rear air pressure (if it will hook with more)
Raise launch rpm
Roll in a little deeper
Switch to a radial slick or drag radial
anti roll bar if it's stock style 4- link

Re: Methanol maintenence for s/c dragster
