Question Shock & Strut descion

It's a street car and I autox but have been drag racing. Would like to go with easily adjustable shocks front and rear if possible ? Lowering the car for handling gain is ok but its got a clear the 17x9 wheels with 245/45r17 tires which rub slight at low speeds now. So far my pick iS H&R SPORT spings from Max Motorsprts.
Just how much range do you really get with Tokico or Koni adjustables ? Will it really save my butt on road trips and be rock solid on race day. The non adjustable or just monroe formula GP's are cheaper.

Thumbs up

Adjustable shocks/struts are nice, but $$$.
Try getting some in the setting you want/need then "leave it alone" (the adjustability).
As for springs, I recommend the Eibach Street springs rated at 450-580 which are 10% stiffer than stock. I had these.
For more spring you may want to go to someting linear in the 650# rate from like BBK. The HR springs are a godd chice (from what I hear). Save the $$$ for now and get some Monroe GP's. You wont be disappointed.
