67 firebird front springs?

i'm picking up a 67 firebird with a 468 bbc in it monday. motor is built up. solid cam, merlin heads, crane gold rockers and stud girdle....ect. it's got the mono leafs and traction bars, 4.11's and a th400, 3500 stall. it won't hook at all. fist gear is useless and second is more or less too. it's great for smoking the tires down the road but not anything else. the car came stock with a 326 i believe. ride hight is fine but the front end doesn't want to come up. the car just wants to brake the tires lose. i'm going to get some MT dot tires for it and 3 way front shocks set to 60/40 to start with. but i'm sure it needs more help than that. the car is for the wife so it needs to handle/ride nice on the street. i don't like the idea of it braking the tires lose so easy in second gear if she gets on it.

thanks for your help.

Drag shocks will do nothing for you ride quality you want on the street.

Work on the rear, not the front.
