Post Grand National wheels & suspension

Okay, I removed the v-6 and dropped a 455 in the Regal.
The front-end fell about 1.5 in. so, I installed coil springs from the '84 Regal diesel (which restored the hieght.

Now, are there any ideas out there for better handling (parts,ideas) ?

What sized wheel/tires will you be running??
Aside from moving the engine back behind the
front wheel centerline, you'll need a much
heavier anti roll bar, higher dampning rate
shocks, and Poly bushings all round, but it'll
still understeer badly...
