Small block fox body guys, I have ???
I am helping my mom and dad set up thier 79 mustang,
First the combo is a 79 hatch back no interior besides a 10 point cage, a pair of rci buckets, aluminum dash, a hand full of guages, shifter & a steering wheel. the wind sheild & rear windows are lexan the sides are still glass, I'm thinking the car wieghs around 2600-2800 lbs,
power comes from a 351W stroked to 393, AFR205 heads super victor intake & bbk headers, behind that is a C4 tranny & a 9" in the rear with I believe 26x10 slicks,
the car ran a few races last year and worked ok, this year at the first race when mom left the line it pulled hard right, so she babied it the rest of the night, this last weekend I drov the car in her place & when I left the line it did the same thing, I crawled under the car and found a couple bolts loose on the upper link bars, after tightening them up the car worked off the line a lot better, however I feel that it sits to high in the back & this is also causing bad handleing farther down the track,
Right now the rear suspension is a stock type 4 link with moroso trick springs & stockish type shocks,
Now that I have gotten involved I talked them into going with a set of adjustable coilovers, I am going to leve the 4-link & just ad the shock mounts, but before I get started I was wandering if anyone out there is running a similar combo (wieght & power) if so what spring rates are you guys finding works well? I'm thinking around 175-200 but I though I would get experianced opinions first,
