What are your rules for ride height? Start there and raise as needed when corner weighting.

You didn't mention the dampers either

Some old koni yellows not shocks that will be good for road racing. Any suggestion on a good set of shocks?

Good to hear because the price of good shocks is not surprising high, but when there is other things to finish on the car. It's nice know I can run a few events and get it sorted before buying race shocks.....

Per Lee Grimes @ KONI USA, off the shelf builds might be the same price or cheaper than rebuilding old yellers.

Stepping up from the Koni's you get into the "stupid" pricing IMHO. $2500-3000 will buy you a set of dampers or a whole old EF with upgrades.

Might wanna look into Whitener setup as well.

Whitener Racing Shocks
