Fox Suspension Questions.

Just recently picked up a 1990 LX. Car is auto (built aod), has a Powerdyne blower with some other engine mods. Car made 368 RWHP and 363 RWTQ on the dyno. It is running rich and is getting tuned tomorrow. Should pick up some power with good tune. The car only has 44K miles on it. Gear is a 3:55. OK, here is the problem I am having. The car has 275/40/17 Michelin Pilot Sports (ZR rated) on the rear. Suspension is totally stock. When I get on it from a dead stop all I do is spin. From a 30 mph roll and stomp it, it will get sideways. I'm guessing drag radials on back would help, but still think some suspension work needs being done. Looking for suggestions that are budget minded. I will be taking the car to the strip (just for fun) grudge and TNT stuff, but also want it to handle good on the street. I had a 93 with a 347 and full drag suspension, hooked great at the track, but was no fun to drive on the street. Also not wanting to really lower the car, as the wheels and tires in back barely fit as is. Any thoughts are much appreciated!

Subframes, mm adjustable lcas, upgrade shocks...that's cheapest upgrade but with lots of growing potential like front coilovers,mm cc plates,panhard/torque arm,remove ucas n quad shocks,get suggested Frt n rear spring rates with the adj. Lcas and you will have a great street/strip .02
