A friend of mine has a 1981 Kenworth W900A strictly drag race truck with a 8V91 Detroit. Front is stock leaf spring suspension 22.5 tires with Alcoa aluminum rims. Out back is front single drive axle and rear tag axle which is chained up so the tires are a bit off the ground "Used for weight and as a wheelie bar" Tires on both axles are fitted with Michelin X-One Super singles with Alcoa aluminum rims. For the suspension he has air ride all 4 corners out back. I never saw a ladder bar type or coilover set up before on a drag race rig. Everything I ever saw was either leaf spring or air ride. Guess if you have a torch, mig or arc welder you could build any type suspension set up. Hope this helps you on your scale truck model build.
