first of all get rid of those 10" & 12" cylinders & go with 6" or 8" in the front & you need atleast 14" cylinders in the rear minimum to stand 3Wheel........
12" cylinders wont let you stand a 3; only a power 3;
Its Better to Lift ONE Corner(Rear) then to dump a corner you get better results like that; well atleast I do in my 82 cutlass supreme :cool:

My opinion is get rid of them, you dont need the big cylinders once you start riding your gonna want to hop it here and there, and the cylinders are too big, if you stay smaller cylinders front/ and 10-12's in back you wont have move,adjust,or add anything. My homies got a cutlass, with 12's in the rear and all stock.

from all the research ive done on getting g-bodys to stand 3 wheel heres what ive come up with


14's or 16's in the rear 8 to 10 batts chain bridge extended trailing arms and reinforced trailing arm ears the part that is welded to the top of the rear end.

here is a pic of my trailing arm ear before i reinforced it


this happened one night when trying to hit a standing 3 and it wasnt reinforced

here is where you can get cheap trailing arms ryderzhydros


hope this helps,,,i know its alot of work but your ride will thank you in the end

A good reinforce frame or a partial frame wrap, and 3 pumps and 6 batteries with 3 in each corner will let the car stand 3...with 14s in the back
