I'm building a drag car out of a 72 Skylark. I have a few questions?
First off here is what I have.
1970 "SF" code 455
1970 Stg 1 heads rebuilt and Street/Strip ported by Greg Gessler
Standard Hyperutetic 10-1 pistons purchased from the GSCA
Lunati hydraulic cam 230/240 @ .050 .496" lift w/1.55 ratio rockers
TA Performance SP-1 intake port matched and shot tumbled for appearance
1972 800 cfm Q-jet w/mods
Turbo 400 being rebuilt, I have not purchased a converter yet.
12 bolt posi rear being rebuilt with 3.73 gears.
What kind of shock and springs should I be running?
Should I buy one of those rear suspension pkg like HRPARTSNSTUFF sell?
What is the biggest slick and wheel I can run without cutting up anything?
I'm just looking to get in the low 13's or maybe even the high 12's this season. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
