    I would like to get some measurements off the set up if i could. like length of the upper and lower arms and the ride heigth angles (basicly putting an angle gauge on the arms with vehicle at rest)

    would be super in helping set up my new chassis.

    I got a 72 but I have air shocks,so I don't know if the angles would be correct. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    if ya get a pinion angle too then no it won't matter what springs. I'm using stock links but I'm running firestone air bags, plus the frame is out of a 1940 coupe so it's all being fab'd.
