Re: lowering springs

the drag launch springs don't lower the car. really lowering springs and drag racing don't mix. But that's ok. I run 275/40R17 MT ET street radials and don't have any problem hooking up. But I run an auto trans and stock converter. these are the springs I run. they work and look great. and the price is right.

Re: lowering springs

lowering and drag racing dont mix but if you want to try to do the best you can get softer springs in the back and stiffer in the front for weight transfer

Re: lowering springs

hmmm this is gonna be work. would it be best to just not lower the car? overall i would like the car to launch better without sacraficing some ride comfort. however, i wouldnt mine if it closed the gap any.

Re: lowering springs

I good set of tires and you can hook with no problem. even with lowering springs.

when you start making big power then you might want to switch to drag springs.

Re: lowering springs

I have the H&R sport springs on mine and on the nitrous I would cut consistant 1.5x 60fts and with the super charger I cut a 1.45 60ft using a set of 275/60/15 et drag radials. the rest of the suspension is bmr lowers, bmr upper, relocation brackets, QA1 adj shocks , and I also have a bmr sway bar delete.
