Question 60ft Time question

I just bought a set of SSM lift bars. I have a totally stock setup. Front springs rear springs shocks and sway bar are all factory stock. Does anyone know what kind of increase in my 60ft times I will see by bolting up my new Southsides?

Also I hear they play hell on the torq boxes. Can anyone verify or dismiss this claim.

Thanks,
Rod

Looking for drag race suspension parts. Also looking for nice 4cyl body to start new project. E mail me if you have either.

Rod,
They hit the tires VERY HARD. I'd seriously consider a good-working drag suspension, subframes and getting the torque boxes welded up. They should help you get in the low 1.7's for 60-foot, maybe better, depending on how well the suspension's working.

Get the torque boxes welded up now, they will tear 'em up quick. With a set of stickies the Southsides plant the tires hard. You should be able to pull high 1.6s N/A and into the 1.5s on the squeeze IMO.
