air ride is so overrated
it makes for a stiff ride with not much in the way of shock absorbtion.
remember the old hijacker airshocks?

Given the fact that you're building a pro-touring car, with the limited choices given, I say mini-tub and relocated leaves.

I doubt you will get many air bag fans here. I would build a triangulated 4 link backhafl. Or even get one fron Morrison already built. But then you got to look at front options, then all of a sudden you have a full chassis under it.

Good answer!!

I say mini-tub & relocate the leafs...after all you just want more tire right? Not to redo the whole suspension.

If you really want to build a new rear suspenion (not a kit) for your car, we need to go have a few drinks and talk about it! It's not as fun as it sounds...trust me it's a ton of work!!
