We all know the a-body twist that we have when we leave the stop light. Heres what I did to fix it.
drivers
Passanger, preloaded about 5-8in down the shock.

It's cheap and it works!

Look for the blue springs over the shocks. There for trucks too increace the load they can carry. But, if you preload them by jacking the opiste side of the rearend, it takes the place of a airbag in the pass rear spring. I put them on both sides to take up some of the slack from the old springs.

Oh, yes it is load. What a Face

What?

Only way to prevent twist is a roll cage and Solid body bushings.

I prefer my heavy full framed car over a crinkle-body any day. Of course if you really want to go as far as solid body bushings, might as well go for motor plates & solid trans mount too.

Did you ever take an aluminum Coke can and crush it with your hand and then try to straighten it back up? Sure, you could split it down the side and get a tiny hammer in there and beat out all the dents and then weld it back together, but it STILL will not be as good as it was before you crushed it. That is how I compare unibody cars to full frame cars. JB
