Metric Setup - 1986 Buick Regal Street Stock/Bomber


Recommended Posts

This will be my first year racing. I bought a 1986 Buick Regal Street Stock. The car was setup for Asphalt. Looking what I should run for this car on dirt.


No weight jacks or spacers allowed. Springs have to be stock mounting with no change to spring cups etc.


I have new springs for the front. 1250 RF, 1000 LF. Both springs are 12". How are these for starting with?


What should I put in the rear? I am not running a sway bar on the front or rear. Just trying to get a ball park so I can get the car out on the track to test. I was thinking of going with 200 LR, 175 RR. What do you recommend. What spring height? I have not purchased these yet.


Track is a 1/4-1/3 mile low bank. Track is Dry Slick most nights. Especially in the mains.


We are required to run 10" Slicks. I have 6 New Hoosiers 3 10.0/26.5-15 1080 for the inside and 3 10.0/27.0-15 1080 for the outside. What tire pressures do you recommend we start with.


Any help is appreciated.
