Which rear shocks to choose?

Help me determine what rear shock I should go with... My car is a 92 5.0, manual 5spd, making 505rwhp and running DR's. My question is what adjustable rear shock should I choose? I am considering Strange 10way adjustables or the KYB AGX adjustables. My car currently has new NON adjustable kyb gr2's for the front struts, Eibach pro-kit on all 4 corners, and cheap old shocks on the rear. It does have aftermarket Upper and Lower control arms. My car is 90% street and 10% drag strip. I am just looking for something to maximize traction when I play on the street or go to the strip! Or adjust it stiffer for some good street driving. Rear shocks are old and the fronts are new so I need to replace the rears anyways!

Whats your suggestions?


92 5.0 with edelbrock heads, Trick Flow Track Heat, Custom Comp cam, 65mm thb, Pro-m 83mm, bolt ons + vortech S-trim.

Hard to beat the Strange shocks for the price.

Anybody running standard non adjustable struts up front and the adjustable shocks in the rear? If so does it work well? I don't plan on changing the struts in the front since they are new.
