{O  I think I can help,  >:D first less get the line loc,did you ever use one because the tires need to be wet and shocked,    ::) now I know some of us will say that iam wrong but I race alot.  :police:  A line loc is a tool that we use to get buy its not going to hold your car,it will slide and at times it won't hold but if you have alot of grunt to spin them up try this,"we roll in the water than hit it 2 rpms on the tire,now the tire is wet,you don't want more than that because you will sling water in the wheel well,than roll out of the water about 4'or 5' than in first gear hit it hard", now it when it starts to  spin shift to second don't wait and get a shift lite,some racer like to go to 3rd.  :D  On the front end I had that same problem with my 75' Duster,I put new 90/10 shock (it had the same that I bought in 95' over 10 years old) but for 3 weeks racing it was bad than we turn the T/bars down 2 turns and hit it on the nut.  No more pulling,mine pulls the wheels off the line it come down in the groove,it was going nuts till we fix it. :-\  Than hit the brakes and don't pull at the end.        bent43

so you think it might be my shocks causing my problem??, i dont know how old the shocks are they came on the car 3 years ago. or maybe turn down my t-bars? it drives normal untill the squealling starts then it pulls a little.

Did you check your brakes. Maybe the squealing is comming from there.
Possibly a tight caliper not releasing all the way causing a pull or squeal.
