I guess it depends on where you run.
At Delaware I would say 80% of the cars are leaf spring and do very well, but at Barrie the coils seem to do a bit better.

leafs are more forgivable for newbies but like thayne says its wave a magic wand over them, when you get a coil car right it is a rocket.

Talk to 10 people, get 10 different answers Grin

From what I hear the leaf rates run by the Camaros are pretty close to what we run with coils, so I guess it doesn't matter anyhow Smiley

How about 3rd link, panhard bar, tubular lowers with hiem ends and load bolt rear coils.
Now that's adjustable rear suspension, and legal here..

Nope, that's what we run at Delaware in the Super Stocks, it was the only way the coils could keep up with the leaf spring X & F Bodies, don't forget the Ford 9" as well.
