has anyone turned their leafs around so that more leaf is near the front eye and left the rear clamps open so the leafs can seperate while stalling at track.This is on a racecar with southside liftbars an I heard mopars have used this trick for years to help raise the body an plant the slicks when lauching.Just wondering if has tried this?

I'm not sure you can turn them around. I think the eyelets are different widths at each end.

However, take a look at the springs I picked up from Global West here:

They work great. I have a set of M/T ET Streets on my '56 and with these leafs I don't have any wheel hop at all. I don't run crazy power numbers, but I have a warmed over ZZ383 backed by a 700R4 with a 2800(ish) stall converter. It hooks really well with these springs. Cost was pretty affordable too at about $300 for the pair.

Found out what I wanted to know from a mopar site.I added a leaf turned around to under the front eye.I am not going to clamp the rear half so the body will rise with the lift bars.
