    There what people used back in the old days if they didn't have slapper bars on there leaf springs. To help aid with traction.

    I just put some competition engineering drag shocks on a couple weeks ago and they work a lot better than stock, but could be better. The major anti-squat is reduced to minor anti-squat. From my thinking you are pretty much going to want an adjustable shock with settings to make compression really easy, and extension very hard. Given you are looking for a drag shock anyways.

    There are a few people on ls1tech in the gears section running mini ladder bars, which I assume is what you mean.

    Just look at what all the fast cars are running. Alot are still running stock suspension or 4 link. It's just a well proven setup.

    I'm running 9.75 @136 so far on stock suspension, on a safe tuneup.

    Looks like my other post got deleated.

    What are you planning to do with the car? Street and Strip, Strip, Street, Turn corners?
