74 nova question

Hi,

I have a 74 Nova SS. Small Block Chevy : around 650 hp, with torque converter 5300 rpm. 4.10 gear, th400 nitrous + 200 hp one stage (with no nitrous progressive controller)

Rear shocks : QA1 adjustable 12 postition rear with slide-a-link traction bar and landrum mono-leaf sprong. for the front, I have lakewood shocks 90/10 with V6 new moog coil spring

I run right now 9.77 at 136 mph...but have some traction problem (1.49 0-60 foot)

I have 2 comment from people who make drag racing : First one...the said that my front end is too low...and I need to put V8 original moog coil spring (without AC) brand new....and other said...I have to put Moroso Drag race coil spring...I dont want to buy both..and take the time to change twice the coil spring....

What are you thinking about those 2 option..What is the way to go ????

PS. My nova weight around 3500 pounds with me inside (6 pts roll-cage), dart block, aluminum head, electric water pump, march pulley...aluminum radiator...etc....(tubular arm in the front) with aluminum wheels...

Thanks, Stephane.
