Bilsteins get my vote also. The front stock mount shocks are so far from the tire that I want all the dampening I can get. I would not worry about split valving.

Can I ask why no split valving? It works real well on a Modified, why not a street stock? Just trying to get some ideas..

Well, split valving may be something to try as you get the car close to "perfect" On a mod the shock is close to the spindle (more dampening control). Streets bounce around a lot with a front end in the 1600 pound range and a spindle to shock motion ratio of almost 3 to 1. A mod has a front weight of around 1100 pounds with a motion ratio of about 1.2 to 1. Put good shocks on and don't worry about split valving them for several races.
