What pressure did you have the rear tires at? Sounds like you didn't have them low enough. I'm assuming that pinion angle is minus 1 degree, not positive 1 degree.
Tires should be around 12.5 psi cold before the burnout and 14-15 psi afterwards. If you have rim screws, you can take them down to 10.5-11 psi cold and 13 psi hot.
Also, those 125 lb coil-over springs might be a little too weak for your setup, not giving you enough lift. I'm running 135 lbs springs up front with a carbed setup with a lot of weight stripped off the front, ie only accessory is the alt and tensioner, no front bumper, no sway bar, no smog, no EFI crap, etc... They are a little soft IMO, but seem to be working OK for my car.
