68 Mustang..rear suspension for drag race

I need help on the best technique for the rear suspension. I need some opinions for how to get my rear-end stable enough for drag racing, and to get it to hook up going down the track.

Thanks,

Cody Swafford

CALTRAC- and a 9" rear is cheap and easy.

Rear suspension for Mustang

Call John at CALTRACS. He puts it on the bumper with 9" tires

Are you listening? Two people (and now a third) have already told you CALTRAC'S. Kultulz even posted a link. They are all you'll need. There are many cars posting 1.3 sec. 60 ft times on 10" tires with just leaf springs and Caltrac bars.
