Default New guy right here with questions!!!

hello to everyone. I just bought a 92 gt my 2nd foxbody since my first car and im so relieved that i finally got another one. so bear with me its been awhile. the car is 100% stock except for the exhaust and lowering springs. brand new paint job which was just the stock color just repainted and rebuilt auto trans. i paid 2800 for the car. i love it to death bought it from a original owner which the man that i bought it off of was my 75 year old neighbor lol. my questions are i want to put weld draglites on the car 3.5 front and 8 or 10 in the rear but i really dont know if i can since the car is lowered. also the dang thing scrapes the cats everywhere i go. im in the market for weld draglites, headers, x pipe and all other bolt ons and i would appreciate any feedback of, if you had this car and 1000 dollars to spend what you would do. besides leaving it all stock lol. but i really want to know about the springs. thanks you

If you're leaving the car mostly stock, why would you want to put drag wheels on it? They aren't very ideal for street use. Are you wanting performance or are you wanting style?

Check out this coincidence... I'm from Huber Heights (graduated from Wayne) and my dad still lives there. Also, I'm selling a basically new set of 15x3.5 and 15.8 Weld Draglights with practically new tires on them, and they're in my dad's garage in Huber over off of Shull Road!

The fronts are BFG 155/80-15 radials and the rears are 275/60-15 M/T Drag Radials.

If you want to raise it up, I can set you up with UPR's Drag Springs. They only lower the car a little less than 1" from stock height, so they'd work perfectly with my draglites.

I can do the wheels, tires, and springs for your $1000. Might even be able to sneak an x-pipe in there at that price too, but I'd have to go over the numbers.
