foxbody 6.0 powerglide swap front suspension ????

I am in the process of swapping a 1989 coupe to 6.0\Glide\strange 9 in. Car will be used for mostly straight line driving in 1\8th mile distances. What front struts\coil over ratings are you guys running?

I was thinking Koni 70\30 fronts with 250 lb springs but that may not be a good match at all. Probably need something lighter......Ideas?

Other items I have a AJE K-member, tubular a-arms up front with Strange adjustable rear shocks and stock V6 rear springs.

Thanks in advance,

Dogman..............

Hopefully that works out well for you. for future questions this specific, where the incorrect answer could completely waste your time and money, I'd probably ask over at Yellowbullet. they've got a much larger group of true drag racers with much more experience. Sometimes rough around the edges but there is a LOT of knowledge floating around that group.
