    my lakewoods seems to work nice, 50/50 rear shocks, i use 70/30 front struts but drag only i would do 90/10s

    i dont have drag rims and tires but have decent 60 foots tims.

    qa1's would be the best best since they have adjustability

    I've heard some say that the blistine shocks are better then the QA1's... anyone disagree???

    Personally i'm not sure so i'm not taking sides but to my mechanical knowledge i'd say since the QA1's have adjustibility i'd think they were better... Just my o2.

    The Koni's are top notch...better than Bilstien or HAL...but expensive.

    I'm thinking about making a fully adjustable suspension with them.

    I have the Lakewood LCA's and I think they are a great buy ($88 at Jegs),and are very solid.

    No doubt. Strano sells them cheaper than anyone else.

    Konis are the best handling shocks made, period. But the original question was "what would be the best drag shocks/ springs to put on my 89 rs? t- tops." QA1 makes the best DRAG shocks and springs. Konis are not made for drag racing, they are made for road racing!
