Drag Alignment, KEVIN$, John91coupe/ others pls help
Hi. I'll list my suspension mods below and I was hoping someone could chime in and tell me what I should be looking for when I take the stang to an alignment shop.
Things like toe in, camber, pinion angle, preload etc will all be helpful.
Of course I will have to do some fine adjusting while at the track, but I need a good baseline to start off of.
Car should weigh around 2800 to 2900 with me in it
28x10.5 ET drag out back
165/R50 in the front, 25.5" overall diameter
Weld 15x8" rear, weld 15x3.5" front
Also 10 pt cage and subframe connectors through the floor and torque boxes done
Lakewood 90/10 struts
Eiback drag launch springs
Ride height around 1" lower than stock
Hotchkis Camber/Caster adjustable plates
All accesories removed from front, it's very light, alum heads, alum rad, no power steering or anything
A-arms, and k-member are stock for now
REAR SUSPENSION :
Note, I'm running a full spool
Eibach Drag launch springs with air bag on the right
Comp Engineering 3 way shocks (set at 50/50 for now)
UPR upper and lower control arms with spherical rod ends in the front and spherical solid housing bushings, ALL BUSHINGS ARE METAL AND NOT URETHANE
car sits higher in the back than in the front due to 28" tires
At the moment I am not running a sway bar in the rear, but I plan on using a upr drag style swaybar.
I assume I should have the rear tire adjusted to sit in the middle, lowers are adjustible.
thanks for any input.
