 I have never corner weighted an FC. But I'm certain there distribution is close to what the cars are. (about 64% on the rear) I have in fact experienced snap oversteer in a FC. Much like what can happen in the cars. The trucks can really use a front swaybar. I've fabbed up mounts that will use a stock 1" front bar from a full size Chevy van. Should be much better in cross winds.Paul Fox

 The FC are almost 50/50  weight… so no differential need except for weight of engine

For ANY  vehicle..

To find your correct pressures use the talcum powder method, starting at max. tire press. on sidewall and lowering until you get full tread contact as you roll over it.

I know the general policy of putting less air in the front tires than the
rear.  Does that change at all if I have different sized tires in the front
and rear?

I have two vehicles as follows:

61 Rampside Pickup
65 Monza Convertible

How would you inflate the tires on each of these?
