first of all a 108" metric.. is nothing like a Camaro,
,..it's a 4 link , not a leaf spring car..
there set up's are not even close..to the same..as far as springs...
there 3" narrower , 3" shorter..,& 3 " higher ,
the spoon on the clip...is most of the front end height problem !
along with the A-arms..
there 6" frame height cars.., unless you use 2" drop spindles...or ,*&^%$$%
as far as a RF bumpstops , i came close with a 1400lb RF spring..lol
because there short , narrow , and high...//
you need a big RF spring..and lots of cross%... to get them to work..
I'm getting ready to turn my old Metric F8 car into a street stock, but last time I ran the oval it was crazy loose at entry, middle, and exit but was turning good lap times (5th fast).
I didn't change anything from the F8 setup except to dial in about 52.5% cross.
3150# total w/driver
Carrera 4/6LF & RF
NoName very soft rear shocks
Camber -4.25deg L & R
Caster 2.5deg L 3deg R
Ride Height 4" (Using tall monoballs to eliminate bind and bottoming)
Rubber bushings all around and stock mounting points
I was getting some hop on deceleration, but there was no sign of bottoming on the RR.
From what I've seen on here, I should just start over.
