    for the best shocks around..look into koni ..not quite geared towards all out drag racing ...but for a street car they are the best..if your car is lowered...you will want konis or blisteins (sp)

    Since the OP is wanting a drag shock I would go Strange. Way better than QA1's and affordable, AFCO makes a great product but $$$$>>>>http://www.afcoracing.com/tech_pages/dragshock.shtml

    I put the kyb adjustables on the front. With sportlines, and it rides like a champ. However the rear shocks are still stock cause my wife cut my spending short due to other prioritys.
    I think after having this front sus set up. I'm pleased with it. Don't hate on kybs.

    Gas-A-Justs *suck*. If you are going for KYB's, you want AGX's. They have much better control and are adjustable too, which can help you dial the car in on the street and strip both.
