    car pulls hard to right

    My drag truck pulls hard right I believe it's a torque pull due to the fact the quicker the short time the harder it pulls. I have a Ladder Bar/Link suspension, spool, coil overs front and back rear set for max squat and front set for max up travel. Today I was checking the supension and notice that the left rear fender well has normal amount of rubber from burnouts while the right side has next to none i'm not sure what this indicates but i'm looking for steps to take to correct the pull.

    Does the rear end have a spool in it?

    yes it has a spool, at one time I was told while doing the burnout the right slick would bounce up and down so I installed new coil overs but i'm not sure if it still jumps up and down. another thing while doing the burnout the rear will twist in way that i'll be looking to the right so much that I will have to abort the burnout.

    I have the exact same problem. My car has drag bags installed and that helps some but air pressure is very critical.

    Has it gone down the track straight before or this the first time out?

    hi Beast ilast year it picked the wheels up about a foot and went straight as an arrrow. then at some point it started to pull at 1st i thought it was the tires going away and then one thing led to another anothing the appears to be leaning in the right rear side.

    if the rearend is square, i am inclined to think you have a spring preload problem, either left front, or right rear to soft.
