Hi, I'm Fred, a new member. I have a '23 T Bucket I've owned for 21 years. I recently upped the horse power. I went from a mild 350 to a stroked 400, Scat crank, Motown heads (2.08 intakes, 14 :1 compression), Jackson gear drive with a tunnel ram and two Holley 450's.
I'm looking for more top end stability. I've been told I need to increase the caster on my straight axle (kind of like a dragster set up) I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this problem.

Welcome Fred!!
Shouldn't be hard to adjust the caster.
What do you have up front? Split bones or hairpins?
What you got for a spring?
How's it mounted?
Give us a pic!!
