rear spring question

Took my 95 gt to the track and the front of the car is lifting on launch but so is the rear. I am running stock cut springs front and back, lakewood 90/10 struts, stock shocks. upr lowers and baseline uppers and have a 6 point cage. Do you think my rear springs are too stiff

factory springs work well. you could try installing a set of coil-overs on the lakewoods, and that will help transfer weigh.

Nothing wrong with the rear rising unless you're bogging or losing control and spinning, in which case a good set of shocks will likely help. Since you have the baseline kit, though, you can raise the ride height to reduce the rise (or at least it works for my car when its biting too hard and I need some spin).

What are your 60' times and what tire and trans are you running?

I am running the new Mickey Thompson Drag Radial 305/35/18 which hooks really well but I think it would do better if I could get the rearend figured out. My 60ft was 1.98 the other night blowing the tires off. I am running the t56 trans. My first run my 60ft was 2.05 but I launched at 3000 and expected to spin and it dead hooked then bogged.

I can't get very good 60' times with drag radials, myself. I know there are guys that do, but the best I've managed was a 1.71 or 1.72, I forget exactly.

Are you slipping the clutch or dropping it? I can't do much better than 2.0 with a clutch drop, and usually slip it out from around 4000 rpm or so.
