vi-king double adjustable shocks are the absolute best shock and a great price compared to any other adjustable shock

Dang that's badass. Shocks look good with that launch. I wana try them out.
Hey I have LCA with relocation bracket but it's non adjustable.
Would it still benefit if I get non adjustable UCA for my launches?

My LCA's are fixed length, I think you'll be fine. I would recommend getting an adjustable UCA (and mount with multiple mounting holes). Being able to adjust the UCA length will help set your pinion angle, and the additional holes on the UCA mount will help dial in the instant center/anti-squat.

A fixed length UCA with poly bushings will be better than the OEM piece with soft rubber bushings, but the lack of adjustment means you won't be able to dial everything in...

good luck...

thanks man - hoping a gear swap this winter will help me squeak into the 11's in the spring. We are lucky out this way to have great track prep and excellent DA

You going to go with 4.30's or 4.56? Assuming your going lower.

I want to see that thing launch with the 4.56's. Thinking about doing anything else with it? Maybe cams or a bottle?

no plans for cams or nitrous, but I'd like to pull a bit more weight out of it.

yep - I swap the drag tires and pull the passenger seat when I hit the track, otherwise street car. Passes VA emissions and driven when the weather is nice (under a car cover at the moment).

15x10's = greater tire selection. I went with 15x8 to minimize rotational weight as much as possible (every little bit helps with my low power).

If you go the 15x10 route you'll need a swaybar relocation kit so the rim will clear the shock mount. What are the suspension plans for the winter?
