    After doing come more reading about the four link stuff, you need to have at least 45% of the weight over the rear. I was in the 44.2% range with me in the car (43.7% with me out of the car). So it looks like I need to add some weight to the rear. I still have not made and installed a speaker box for my sub, so maybe that will be next.

Theoretically you want the intersection right on the line so that the rear does not lift or squat as the movement or the rear suspension absorbs some power, power you could be using to move forward.

    Anyway, The car weighs 2835 with 3/4 of a tank of gas without me in it.
    The center of gravity, with me in it, it right at the driver's seat 14 inched off of the ground.
    Now I need to get a good side view picture of he car so I can make some scale drawings and overlay the four link position options.
    I may input the measurements into a drawing program... Even something like paint has the graduation on the side bars so I can make a scale picture.
    I was curious about the weight of my 95 after the LSJ swap. It was 2550 without me in it. Not too bad considering the sub frame is a lot heavier than the S car.
