Acq required to frame basement wall?
 
This wall frames the crawlspace, so there is finished top wall & 4' high concrete at lower area. Do I have to use acq studs here? The floor is floating plywood.

Treated wood when in contact with concrete that is in/on the soil treated must be used. When connecting treated and untreated use approved nails/screws/plates.

A floating wood floor could be a problem withtout a moisture barrier and isolation from any treated wood.
