I think I'm going to try 90/10 front shocks and remove the 70/30's. This might help to transfer the weight to the rears a little better. Any recommendations?

There is only one "good" brand of fully adjustable front racing shocks and they do not make a bolt on Mustang front shock. We sell a complete kit, but it is prohibitivly expensive for the average racer. That said, I would recomend that you go ahead and get the Summit "house brand" 3 way adjustable front shocks. They are cheaper than the C&E's and are both made by Gabrial.

Just to agree with Alex a little here. I had a set of Koni's on the front of my 69 for awhile. But after chasing a "launch" problem, I found out that one of those not real cheap shocks had went to he!! on me. I now have a set of HAL adjustables on the car. I bought mine used, and they are kind of old, but they work real good.

I am going to need to buy some shocks for the front of my '70, and they will be the Summit brand of adjustables.

Remember now.......don't expect miracles. You do get what you pay for. I said that it was a decent shock, not a miracle worker.
