Thumbs up

Much better than before (first vid in post #1). Notice tire/fender gap doesn't decrease or increase. Some say that is what you want. I personally like to see a slight rise in the rear.
It is not spinning too bad and it is definitely not unloading the tires. Maybe 1 click at a time looser and see what it does

Agree....WAY better.

On the hit you can see a quick tire to fender separation for just a split second.
Dial it in to make the gap stay out for 10-20 feet, you're golden.

Thanks guys. When I was under the car installing the shocks. I was looking at the cars lower arms and noticed they are about level with the ground. Do you think it would also help to bring the rear down a .5”-1”? I raised the front after the car was initially built because it destroyed the stock mounts and 1 control arm from wheel hop. I think I can modify the rears somewhat easily enough but if it isn’t needed I’ll hold off because I plan to go ladder bar on my new setup when that happens.

this is as far as I can go on the stock part. It would probably be plenty strong enough as is. But I think I’m going to add some material to the bottoms that go back to the spring bucket. And have further room to adjust in the future until I switch my setup.

Leaving one tire on and lowering the rear to ride height I now have a .75” rise from back to front on an 18.25” control arm. I hope this helps in my goal for a better 60’.

Had a chance to run the car last night. I bumped the tires back down to 10psi, shocks at 3 clicks from full hard on the compression and 3 clicks from full loose on rebound. First two runs the two step was at 4K. I bumped it back up to 4.4k on the last two runs. Iíve definitely improved the 60í a little but did not improve on the overall 1/4. Either way itís a consistent 10.4 car now.
