Try a set of Lakewood 70/30 shocks and struts. Ditch the drag springs. Which ones are they? The cobra jet or the eibachs? Either way ditch them and go with stock springs or bmr's.

You will get a better launch with the stock springs. A lot of people are ditching the cobra jets and going back to stock. Or the BMR are excellent for a dig.

The 90/10 are meant for a track car with little street time. The 70/30 are good for a car that drives regularly on the street.

It has to do with the weight transfer each has. 70/30 is 70% compression and 30% rebound. Street use.

90/10. Is 90% compression. 10% rebound.

I'm confused on the Lakewood kit from late model. Does the kit for 399 include shocks and struts?
