    for the front, you have to remove the spring from the shock. so, might as well do both at the same time.

    check with our sponsors to see what they recommend.

    Shocks and SFC's are probably the two most important suspension components out there. I would definately do shocks before springs.

    i agree, if you're moving things out of the way, you may aswell bolt in some new stuff...do both at once and you'll be happy.

    you can get great shocks and keep stock springs and you will love it, to the point where you won't want to change them... especially that you like drag, keeping stock springs is a great thing. I'd just get great shocks... Bilstein HD are great for stock shocks and are quite inexpensive. you can also get a bit of lowering if you decide to go w/ a Koni SA in the front (~3/4" lower if you use the lower perch location on the shock)... the hose mode will allow you to do the same in the rear.

    so i recommend shocks + alignment = best mods you can get @ this point.
