Arrow 72 chevelle

first off, let me say that I feel so stupid telling everyone I have a 71 when in fact my chevelle is a 72!!.... I (today) just received my chevy high performance mag and they had an article on chevelles suspention, I read in there that you can elongate the upper control arms rear bolt holes to adjust the pinion angle...has anyone tried this? I have been having traction problems with it and need to start working on it...I threw on a set of 26x10 McCreary's to no avail...my 60ft times are terrible...2.1 and Im spinning well past the 60ft mark...more like the 1/16 mile!!! other than maybe the modification to adjust the pinion angle what else can I do to the factory 4 link to help traction woe's ? Im not familier with the chevelle stock 4 link set-up and other than tubbing it, I really dont know how I can make it hook, the article helped me understand why, but as far as buying the right parts to fix it, im lost....

the pinion angle can be changed by elongating the upper control, but I dont know that it will help your problem, wheel spin is a traction to track case , try lower air , I hope you have a posi.? the tires you have have the right name but do the have the right code, I think (c) is the soft one , I run mickey Thompson street and strip, no traction problem and they have a DOT # Good Luck.
