did you just purchase this set-up or a car with it? does the set up already have a gear or do you have a lot of parts you are going to plumb on up? It,ll help me know what your working with.

sing it for what it,s worth, the reinforcements don,t sound bad for single pump, try some 4 tons just to get the fluid warm LOL post some pics once you get it going.

the 3 to 3 1/2 tons are gonna be a lil too light for the v-8 motor thats in the car. they will bottom out by the 3rd or 4th lick he needs to go either 4 ton or 4 1/2 precompressed coils. or could always try a 3 1/2 ton precompressed coil with a mini coil inside of them but i still think the 3 1/2 tons are gonna be too soft for it

3.5 or 3 ton is what i prefer and have always worked for me, single pump 10 batts full frame v8 55 inches,no weight, with the reds white coils 5 1/2 turns deep cups! but like i said a used set of 4 1/2 really really broke in do ok too! even pro hopper mach threes do better, hell in the front of are dancers we use 2 tons and they still do 45-50, think about it v8 full frame= heavy, right? ok now stock sinlge pump no piston has to lift a v8 a full frame and still compress a 4 1/2 ton coil? youll burn a motor before you compress a 4 1/2 but like i said,if a 4 1/2 works for you then cool but a 3 or 3 1/2 works for me ,just going off the physics!

3/16 is plenty strong front or back. 1/4 just adds weight and if it's in the front it isn't helping your hop.
