We run a 3200 lb street stock Camaro. 3/8 high bank track. We seem to find ourselves running on the bottom groove at feature time. Need to get off the corners better..Has anyone tried to run drag shocks in the front?? It would allow the front to raise up with no pull from the shock & then rebound like the 50/50 shock we have now. Thanks

several companys make stock mount "easy up" shocks for the front,and also "tie downs"for the rear.they are a real good fine tuning tool.you have to be pretty much in the ball park chassis wise to get the full effect.they will make a car that is off do all kinds of weird things.i tried to use them as a tuning tool when i was off quite a bit and all it did was make me more fustrated.once i got the car dialed in with springs,pinion angle ,stagger,wheel offsets,gear,tire presure,and temps.and got real close,proper shock selection pushed the car to the next level.it was awesome.i like bilstien, ran pros for 2 years,and had no idea what a good shock was,and what a great shock was.spend the extra $20 for bilstiens the difference is insane.good luck!p.s,i also run a 3300 pound camaro on a banked 3/8ths.
