Default Dick Miller Suspension Feedback

Dick Miller Suspension Feedback

Just installed a Dick Miller Suspension on the 95 Impala SS and very impressed.
My car already hooks well pulling the left front tire smartly off the ground.
However it pulls to the right requiring attention keeping it straight.


Already purchased the Dick Miller Triangulation Control Arm Brace which strengthens the control arm mounts.
This time added his Upper and Lower Arms and No Hop Bars that change the angle of the Upper Control arms.

Former ECIRS racer Bernie Steinke (he built Snowflake) at Liberty Gas Station in Gaithersburg, MD installed and set up the suspension.
riginally sent the car over to over haul the Axles for new studs discovering both Axles were bent.
So ordered and had installed new Moser Axles with fresh studs.

Picked up the car from Liberty Monday night and drove home with no issues.
Finally got on a quiet road came to a stop and nailed from an idle.
The front end snapped up smartly hit the bump stops and launching straight like.
On virgin road the tires barely spun.
Second test stalled the car at 2000rpm got some tire spin then hooked and took off.

Hope to see a little bit of improvement as the suspension feels a lot more responsive.
The car feels safer launching with no suspension twisting and steering correction.
