Default Confused on what to do with suspension and car

Im looking for more of a drag setup and i bought the car awhile back and didnt know to much then and now i see exactly what i have and have some more knowledge the car has all this

Advanced Geometry System - Level 5
[AGS-L5] $2,170.00

you get it all with Advanced Geometry System - Level 5! Component designs and system prices vary slightly; all systems include Chassis Support Kit, KONI Sport or Bilstein Shocks & Struts, Front Sport Springs, TracKit Plus, Caster Plus, Aluminum Rear Upper Control Arms, Aluminum Rear Lower Control Arms, Sway Bar and Steering Rack Bushings. Easy installation and a great value. Choose by model from the list below.http://<br /> <br /> http://kenn...ca1031676ea28d

What could i use to my advantage or is the car so far in the wrong direction just sell the thing and start over with another car.

Too expensive for me. And it really doesnt come with much. I would go with a kit from D&D for your cheapest best way out.

Im not sure I understand what you want to know though?

OK. Its a really nice setup (if you didnt pay for it... kind of expensive); but whats the problem? Are you worried that you will not be able to drag with it?

You could add 70/30 front struts, it will help alot with weight transfer. i would not go 90/10 on the street, its not very safe because the car will nose dive under hard breaking. You could also dump the sport springs, they usually lower the car and are not really condusive to hooking very well. BBK makes a decent set of drag springs with an air bag for the right rear. Also you can dump the rear quad shocks. Otherwise it just takes practice to hook well. You cant just mash the pedal and pop the clutch, youll have whorable 60ft's.

The kit you have looks to be more for street or road race use than for drag racing. You'll need to change your suspension (shocks/springs) if you want something more drag friendly. Going that route will cost you some streetability though, so it really depends if this will be more of a daily driver or a strip car.
