Hello Buick Friends.
I am working on the suspension of my Dads 69 Skylark and was wondering if any of you stock suspension Buick racers could give me some spring advice. Currently he has a set of stock springs on the front and I know he needs something better because the car does not pick the front end up enough. Currently it has about 4 inches of front end travel and I have heard to make a small tire car work you need at least 6 inches. It has done a best of a 1.55 60ft, but it is pretty sensitive to track conditions and I would like to make it more of a bracket car so I need it to be consistent.
I have read that some of you guys use Mogo springs on the front instead of a drag spring because the drag springs wear out so fast, and that is something I would be more interested in because it is also a street car. I would also be interested in spring advice on the back of the car as well and if you have any good shock suggestions. The back currently has a 3 way adjustable CE shock and the front is stock. I plan on putting a decent adjustable shock on the front and installing an anti roll bar instead of the stock rear sway bar that is in place.
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
