RS-9204 Rancho is a good adjustable street strip shock.

Thanks do you about what they run.
And what do think of the summit racing adjustable front shocks,they go from 70/30-60/40-90/10 they run about $27 each.They would be better then the old worn out ones now.

Have had very good luck with KYB's. Firm, but not uncomfortable, ride. With front and rear sway bars, 1" front and 3/4 rear, car handles good for a streeter.

I used those KYB shocks all around back when the mustang was set up to go around turns... and still used the rear ones up until a few years ago when I went to Cal-Tracs and #9204 Ranchos.

By the way, my best 60ft (a nitroused 1.43 on a 28x9 tire) came with the KYB rear shocks and slapper bars.

Good Luck!
