90/10's with Motorsport C's, hows it gonna hook?

I have 90/10's in my 88 and I have a set of Motorsport C springs that I ran in my 89. I loved the stance of my 89 but Im afraid the C's are going to hold me back from getting the best launch I can get. I'm curious about getting some Drag Launch springs but I don't want a goofy stance. If anybody has pictures or experience with handling springs matched up with 90/10's please chime in. Im going to be installing my front suspension soon and want to know what to do before hand so I can do it once and forget about it.
Thanks,
Jesse

Not sure if I understand the question..... Struts do not affect the stance of the car at all......

Being that the C springs are lowering (handling) springs and the 90/10's are a drag setup, I'd say it's mismatched.

As cevtv stated, shocks/struts do not affect stance.

I know struts do not affect the stance. I'm saying that I like the stance of my C springs but want to run the 90/10's to hook up real good. I just dont like the stance of drag springs, too high in the front for me. I was just wondering how well the car is going to weight transfer with the C springs. I guess I'll try it out and find out myself.

What I should have said is, does anybody have pictures of drag launch springs? And does anyone have experience with 90/10's matched up with C and or any other lowering springs.

Lowering springs can launch hard and consistent. It's the sum of the parts that make an efficient suspension package. Here's mine with B springs and monroe formula gp shocks/struts. Typical 60 ft is 1.52-1.54 and it drives nice on the street.
