John,

You can lower as discussed, but before you lower we should document your 60's, which I think you have. Then we start with known low banging fruit. We document those 60's and Then go at it with lowering coils. You should see the best result with OE height fronts and lowered rears.

I know you are a detail person and that is why I am thinking one step at a time. If you are willing to document your drag suspension setup I will support you build.

We have a considerable number of people who use our lowering springs and still drag race their car successfully. It all comes down to the setting the car up for the lowered ride height. John when you are ready for a set give me a call and I am sure Allan will let me work with you on it.

What struts and shocks are you guys using with lowering springs? In my personal experience with my cars I have always found better performance and ride quality in coilovers.
