do a Google on "mopar super stock springs" = technology from the 50s

"Shelby type" traction masters are ancient technology that reduces wheel hop but fails to plant the tires.... Slapper bars are ancient also, and look sucky too.

Shelby used what the rules allowed..... front and rear.... that doesn't mean it was good stuff THEN or 40 years later.

Replace all those worn out rubber bushings with urethane.

Make spring clamps out of 1/2 inch thick stuff and use at least grade 5 3/8 bolts. See post # 11.
