im just bout ready to getter on the street, 64 ht pro street. i have a chris alstons rear 4 link clip.
my front 4 link mount is 4" off the ground.

If using a trans brake, i would start with an intersect point of about 43-45"
& about 7-8" off the gound.

if going foot brake, i would try 33-35", about 8"-9" off ground


do you have adjustable shock in the rear ?

no adj shocks, just the ones that came with the kit.
that 8-9" off the ground ,are you talking about the intersection point.
right now im at A3 and E7 which gives me 37.75 and 6.25 intersection point.
see my first post , the front mount is 4" off the ground , it sits looooow .

I see, we can't raise it anymore, so if you lower the upper front down to E6
that is 30 5/8 & 6 5/8" .
Once you try one setting, you should "move" in one direction to see how the car responds. if the change improves 60 ft times, continue in that direction.
