Had mine setup the same as yours except 6batts with 3 1/2 tons and hit 26 in.

Upgraded to 3/4 fittings and check to 3/4x1/2x1/2 Yblock to 2 #6 hoses and an adel 2 and 5 1/2 turns of mach 3 and lost 12 inch. of my hop.

Guess im going to go with some precompressed 4ton or 4 1/2's next.

you deff. should be doing more than that! those dumps and checks suck so i would tee the front pumps together, get new checks, and run one good dump first of all. that will make more of a difference than the coils. :cool:

What do you mean by a mini coil inside of it :confused:

mini coil is what they used on like mini trucks for the rear spring selection so u can use the stock location since most mini trucks in the rear had a leaf spring suspension u couldnt anything bigger than an 8 inch cylinder back there without doin any mods. so its just a smaller sized coil that i put inside of my full stack to help out with compression of the coil so it doesnt compress too soon or too fast.


here a pic of last nights christmas parade i was involved in and its 4 1/2 pre compressed up front with the mini coil. and u can see the front lays down pretty low cuz the coils are too soft now, but the mini coil inside helps out.

the car is in neutral as well and the first pic is how the car sits dumped in the front and in the 2nd pic is the 2nd lick on the switch

Me personally in this set up I would run 3.5 or 4 ton coils with 8 batteries to the nose. And I would hope that your front pump has at least a 1/2 inch pressure port. 11 gear and a 3/8 port don't work right in my opinion.
