I am having a hard time getting my car to stand-still 3 wheel. I have 14"
cylinders, bridge and upper drop mounts. When i drop the corner the shit barley drops. I can barley get it to hit a 3 wheel in motion! Any comments? Ill post pics today

not enought weight over hanging the corner to lift the motor up if you have a bridge you will have to run chains and 3 pumps to get it to sit on 3

ive tried that and no luck.

The upper drop mounts are what's stopping the car from standing 3. You changed the point of where the arm pulls down on a corner.

lock up all four, dump the right side, then lift the back again to get more out of the left cylinder, then lift the front again.

What kind of trailing arms do you have?

thats the way it works, however he dropped his upper trailing arm mounts to a lower position, which unless he uses chains to chain off how high the rear locks up before it pulls down on the corner to make it stand 3 its not going to, cuz he has changed the pivot point of when the trailing arm pulls on the car

They are old compressed from a hopper
i told u what ur problem is as well as another guy..its not the coils...its the drop mounts, cuz most people drop the mounts around 4 or more inches..my car has 16s in the rear with drop mounts and i can lock up one corner and the whole rear end lifts up and it wont stand 3 wheel until i push down on the corner..


if ur drop mounts are bolt ins, remove them and put ur arms back to the factory spot...then try to stand the car up...i bet it will
