I have a 74 nova that im in the process of building. Im going to run a leaf spring set up with slapper bars. I am running a ford 9"... Anyone have any pics on how they set up their shocks on the leaf spring set up? thanks
I had a 72 nova with stock leaf springs,9" rear,slapper bars with the j bolts and had good bushings. My shocks were cheap autozone shocks bolted up in the stock location and i always got 141.3 60 foots with a 28/10.5 tire and iv ran 29/ 9 " slicks as well.
a leaf spring slapper bar combo always seems to like at least 6* of pinion. we have run as much as 9* but most we set up are between 6 and 8* and work very well. just thought i would throw that out there. good luck.
