Car needs to hook! Where to start???

The suspension on my 90 GT is stock with 235/60/15 BFG drag radials. Where do I start?

My plan is:

90/10's up front
50/50's in back

what next???

Any advice welcome. I'm clueless when it comes to the suspension.

Have you tried pulling the front sway-bar yet? I've personally seen my 60's drop from 2.0x to 1.8x same night at track. Will you lose some cornering ability on the street, yes but will you transfer weight a bit better at the track, yes. So it's all what your preference is.

Try a set of liftbars(lakewoods or megabites). My old car had a drag launch kit and lakewood liftbars (the rest was stock). It went 1.7's in the 60ft with 235/60 kelly chargers and hooked really well on the street.

A good set of U/L boxed control arms, light weight drag tires and rims (front and rear), lose the front sway bar, 50/50rearXX90/10 front, Moroso drag springs. Do it all and it will hook.

I would suggest a set of slicks as well.

I would yank the swaybar, and invest in an airbag and perhaps some springs. Add the Struts/shocks during the spring install
