I think I've talked myself into getting some DA's instead of another set of wheels and tires lol

I have a 3900lb 70 gm a-body that is probably REALLY nose heavy... S400 turbo, a2w intercooler, heat exchanger up front etc.

So, right now I can only choose front or rear shocks. And currently just have 90/10 front and 50/50 rear setup.

Would I be better off getting da's for the rear or front? And if the front would sa's be good enough since I don't think I have to worry about pulling and big wheel stands or anything like that.

Thanks

I would put them all the way round. But if only on one end the back. I would not go by the post in the other section at all.

If you have a radial tire on the back and limited power you will want a very loose ext and tighten the compression to keep the hit applied then as the power comes up you can adjust to it

Normally for the rear would be # 3870R-1. But, your car looks like it sits pretty low (which is awesome!), you would be best measuring the current installed height (mount to mount distance) before purchasing. Alot of the time a 7" stroke is too long for a lowered car. There are a few options that can work. Give me a call if you need any help.
