u sure ur chains are long enuf they should be about 14 inches with 16 in strokes
who needs chains :dunno:
how many turns r in ur coils? it may not be sittin low enough...
Is the car bridged , if it is maybe the hole ain't big enough to let it roll down the cyl. I had that happen when i did mine, second you don't need chains on a caddy you need weight!!!!!!!
Post pics of the axel and bridge setup
i got a 83 sedan, 8 batts, 4 pumps, 16s no chains no bridge, it 3s all day both sides, 4 switchs

Sounds right , Im running 12 inches with 14 In cylinders on my Box Caprice wagon. :thumbsup: But I can pause with out chains also, only reson im running chains is cause I ripped my upper trailing arms off twice.

Nice, but why does the front seem to come up so slow? I thought you had it coming up fast enough to hop.

I personally like to have the back come down slow though.
