On the mod chassis I build I have been using a 33'' long arm,300 spring 3-5 shock to start with. We run the IMCA tires .

Are you changing any thing else, more lr bite, shocks,springs, bar locations ect. Just trying to get as much info on this as I can before I take the time to go test. if you have some do's and don'ts that would be nice. Thanks

I didnt change anything but took the brake floaters off and ran clamp brakes. I have gone back to the pull bar and moved it to the center of the chassis (vs the left side of the drive shaft)and playing with the hight of the chassis mount . May put lift arm back in for next week .What I like about the lift arm is you can control the braking better.I also do not run 90-10 shock. Give me a call if you would like 563-659-1153 Dave
