ladder bar pinion angle is 2-3 degrees down or the difference between the flat spot where the snubber goes and the angle of the driveshaft. start with the bar parralel (?) to the ground. the higher the front of the bar the the more the rear will raise and harder it will hit the tires. scale the hotrod. standing it up will depend on horsepower.

there is preload on that bar. set youir car on jack stands then jack up the rear housing just until you can slid the left front bar bolt out, put it back in then remove the right set bolt and adjust that bar to where the bolt slids in and out like the left side. now it's all st a neutral setting. scaling the hotrod then will give you your base line to get back to should things get out of whack while tuning her up. it doesn't matter what the weights are just that you record each corner. the back of the bars have solid eye bolts in them. make sure your bars are the exact same length on each side from each eyebolt center to the heim joint center. remember that no matter what anybody tells you, you will have to have some amount of raise to the back end of the hotrod or the tires will not be driven into the ground to get traction. on yes make sure your rear springs are the same length also then adjust the front torsion bars for the same heigth. after all this scale her.
