Jeff, I am only 120 miles from the PA Turnpike exit for Lancaster via US 222. Maybe we can hook up some time?
Sounds like you are VW saavy. I bought a bare adjustable beam and used the parts from the previoulsy cut beam that came with my car. I also “scaled” the car on 4 wheel electronic race car sales that a buddy let me use. After I got it riding correctly I adjusted the beam for ride height and nearly equal suspension up/down travel.
I also removed the rear torsion bars and turned .100″ off each one. The car rode and handled superbly with no added ballast. Bill Collins now calls the car Angleica on this web site.
