six cyl springs give better weight transfer try it before you change them align car with suspension at approximate height car is at as it goes thru traps.if drag only loose the front sway bar barely loosen the control arm bushing nuts{lock tight and or double nut if possible} anldd adjustable front shcks memrer drag strip only no street!!!!!! change rear springs with drag springs@adjustable shocks replace all control arm bushings and weld plates on bottom of lower control arms to strenght{sic} them.use a little thicker metal than arm good hunting
