Tokico spec d vs lakewood shocks and strurts

Hey guys iv got the chance to buy a set of tokico spec d adjustable shocks and struts for 100 bucks. They have 80k miles on them. Should I get these our just save up the 400 for the lakewood set up? The reson I ask is cuz I'm all about the weekend warrior setup for my car. I love taking it to the strip

Though you wanted the car for the track? Of so get the lakewoods. The tokico will be to stiff for the track

The tokico are made more for a road course you want your car to bite down and go. A softer shock will put more power to the ground then a stiff one

You talking about the drag launch springs correct it's made to stiffen up the right side of your rearend. This is because the left side of the rearend will be pushed down under hard acceleration because you driveshaft turns counterclockwise

If you drive the car on the street regularly you will regret the 90/10's. First bump you hot or dip the front end will start skating.

My mustang is hardly ever on the street. I drive it as little as possible I only drive it a couple times a week. I only put about 30 or 40 miles on it in a week

You can run them. But beware if you hit a large bump or pothole. / go over a bridge fast they can start skating on you. The 70/30 will be plenty for you bud
