One of the arms with a shackle on the end of it would work well. Ladder bars would be my last choice right behind doing nothing.

Autofab style 2 link would also work well.

Edit: since you no longer have a bed in the way, kicker shocks mounted off the top of the diff also work well. They allow flex but keep the rotation damped to prevent wheel hop. way better for traction.
Thanks. I’ll cross that bridge when we get there. I owe you some drinks if I’m ever out near you. My brother lives south of Warrensburg. Actually has a side by side short course he built on his property.

Go to to the races at altomont , ukiuh or lakeport and talk to the street stock guys to learn about leaf springs . Steve Smiths book Stock Car Racing tech also a great resource .

Low , center and towards the rear . Some weight behind axle is good but not a ton . Far better for the rig to turn well . Exit speed is easy if you make a clean entry . Figure out your instant and roll centers up front before buying anything
