okay, remember that this is a daily driver as well and I take it to the strip every now and then. I need a good suspension setup b/c the #1 coilovers and stock shocks arnt cutting it at all. I want to be able to hook at the track. What do i need? money is kinda an object too. I was thinking skunk 2 drag springs in the rear and SOME brand of shocks and springs for the front. I would prefer coilovers all around b/c I want to run a 235/60/15 mickey thompson et street radial tire.

I run the omnipower drag coilover setup. It uses their regular coilovers up front (10k springs I think) and I believe 18k springs in the rear. Also running orijin solid bushings in the front lower control arms which helped alot with wheel hop. The car launches really well now. A few of my friends that are really hardcore drag racers have driven it and said its the best car they've ever felt on the launch. It's pretty stiff on the street though. I guess it just depends on your tolerance. I daily drive it about 500 miles per week...

thats what I was planning on buying. Its a killer price for the quality. i want the drag coilovers. I need new lower ball joints b/c mine are 100% gone and I need an alignment and i will be doing great. I just want to be able to launch like a SOB even with street tires, even looked into making my own limit straps.

I strongly advice against running limit straps on a street car...

the Omni coilovers have a really short stroke anyway so there's not much droop travel in the front, and with the 18k rear spring the car doesn't squat at all anyway...

well mixing up theories a little... I run factory bushes in the front, they have done 200,000km. along with factory rubber engine mounts that have done 100-200,000km. So I don't know if they really make a huge difference, maybe I will upgrade them all soon and try it out..
I ran a Blistein shock with a 750lb spring in the back, it was a cheap set-up to start out since I was going to go to a solid rear which i have. I ran high 1.7 60fts.
I have since gone to a rear set-up similiar to the KENS Kustom chassis rear axle set-up. I have made the move to a shorter stroke shock (about 3" shorter than the factory shock) with that set on its hardest setting and a 650lb spring in the back i cut 1.7-1.860fts.. I then went to the 1000lb spring in the back and now I cut 1.5-1.6 60fts...
Next year I ope to try out wheelie bars and see what difference it makes to my 60fts aswell..
