502, DO NOT GO WITH THE 3.5'S!!!!!! The monte is to heavy up front and are very unstable at speed with the 3.5's!! Tried it and no matter how the front was set up anything over 100/105 mph was LOAD YOUR SHORTS SCARY!!!!!!!! The front would dart and skid on correction!!! No control! Don
I had 3.5 on the front of my old Chevelle once driving around on the street and tried to make a turn going about 35... It was a bit of a suprise when the car kept going straight... I know your not gonna be running them on the street I just thought Id through it in there was a funny experience Tom

Thats part of the reason Heck! The other is it actualy makes for quicker transfer of weight. Even though the tire is shorter it takes less time to lift the smaller dia tire to acheive full transfer. Don
