I know a lot of people use eaither stock or QA1's. I know the 98+ have better rear shocks compared to my '94. How do Comp. Engineering shocks compare to my stock ones. I dont wanna dump $300 on QA1's for the rear but $80 for Comp. Eng. are do-able. Worth the money or not much better then stockers. I already got everything else (ta, panhard bar, sway bar, lca's springs) so a set of shocks will finish it all off. What u guys think.
You knew my black car's setup. I cut 1.46 60fts on drag radials, Cam only, 3300 raceweight. I will be putting them in this car as well. Make sure you throw an airbag in the rear passenger spring as well.

What options are there for the front suspension? I spent all of my money and didn't do the research on the suspension. I bought a set of SLP Bilsteen's with springs and everything all the way around before I knew any better. I went out to the track for the first time last Wednesday and it was ugly. The best I could muster was a 12.35 @ 122 MPH w/ a 2.04 60'. LOL. Pretty sad. I am 325/15/50 Nitto DR's and I had to let out in every gear as I had absolutely no traction anywhere. When I hit 3rd (M6) the car went sideways (pretty scary as it was my first time getting sideways in 3rd) on the first pass. My second pass was even worse. I went 12.85 @ 116 MPH. I actually spun so bad when I hit 3rd that I never got traction at banged the rev limiter. Shifted into 4th and bogged thru the traps. After that I decided that I didn't need to run anymore until I fix the suspension. My raceweight is 3450+330lbs (worth of me). I have no wheel hop at all. I have an adj panhard, non-adj torque arm (it was free) and tubular LCA's right now. I would love for some of you "dead hookers" to give me some pointers. I really need to do something on the cheap for now as I am kind of broke at the moment.
Here's my question, can I salvage any part of my current Bilsteen setup? Is there a soft front shock/strut that I can get cheap to help transfer weight? My GTO (dialy driver) squats when I hit the gas, the Z doesn't move any weight at all to the rear.
