TRZ, hands down. They have everything you need for a A body, I would re-bush the front suspension with good energy suspension bushings. Put a decent shock up front, then get the adjustable rear control arms and anti roll bar from TRZ. Along with Strange Double adjustable shocks. You will never have to buy anything again.

Ya know, I've never run one on the street. I don't see why you couldn't. I'll let someone else with experience chime in on that.
Front shocks, you could go with a 90/10 comp engineering. Or a 3 way adjustable comp engineering, those would both be pretty in-expensive. Or you could put a simple single 12 way adjustable strange or Qa1 in the front. It definitely is not as crucial as the rear is. Also might need travel limiters in the front at some point possibly.

so in the rear you are just putting replacing everything with stronger stuff, not doing any relocating? do you just change the IC with ride height? what is the desired pinion angle?

I have a customer with a 69 chevelle,they were hoping for 9.80's. How 9.69 sound instead. TRZ upper and lower A-arms,Qal coil overs in the front and Affco double adjustable on the back,with a little more shock tuning im sure we can get the 60's down and upper 9.50's.
