Rear G Body Suspension

I have an 87 monte aerocoupe with 420hp and tons of torque i need to replace my rear shocks and springs, what do you guys recommend?
i would like to have better highway handling rather than drag strip launch, if you know what i mean.
i was thinking of 1000lb rear springs and heavy duty shocks, can some one advise me please

One thing to consider would be boxed control arms and urethane bushings. I have SSM boxed lower control arms on mine. They work well and come with urethane bushings. I boxed the top control arms myself and added urethane bushings.
420 hp isn't an outrageous amount of horsepower for a g body suspension. With boxed control arms and urethane bushings it will be noticeably improved and should handle that power no problem. Some aftermarket performance shocks and maybe springs could help a bit too. I think hotchkiss makes aftermarket springs for g bodies. Lots of options for shocks, somebody else could help you out with that.
