I've also had this problem in the past. I bought the Rayspeed shock spring retainers, they give the springs extra room. I actually can run associated springs now. If I want to change back to yok springs all I have to do is put the kit spring retainers on if needed.

the chart i gave you is whats been posted here quite a few times. the chart doesn't have the black springs on it and that probably why your asking, as far as i know the black springs were the "kit" springs with the older belt car. the yok web site still has them listed. as far as the kit springs with the sd's i don't know that one either. as far as i can tell most people are where we race no matter what car are using between 12 and 17 lbs springs mostly the lower end of the scale

Hmm..
Has any of you SDW-drivers tried to adapt the old regular style HD front A-Arms with blocks to your SDW? I'm havin B-I-G troubles with too much steering on my car (my driving style is pretty aggressive so i like the car quite pushy, for the moment it just swings around as i touch the wheel..) The main reason i'm asking is because i think longer arms will severely rub the bulkheads, maybe they will fit with no problem after some grinding
No financial breakdown if they don't fit though as i already have about 3 sets of HD arms
