Default C6 Suspension for drag racing

I need some insight on what suspension would be good to run on a C6, LS3, auto, N/A, running in the high 10's? Any insight or suggestions please

Factory suspension is pretty good you can adjust ride height and pre-load any corner just get two way adjustable shocks front and rear to control weight transfer.

Since I fit that exact criteria, the F55 works for me. If you already have a car without it, adding it is not a good choice.

In fact I'll have a set of used viking DA shocks for sale soon.

I went 9.950 back in 2009 with stock suspension, but am currently running double adjustable QA1 shocks.

Yeh... many running in the 9s with bone stock suspensions.

If you feel you must get something, a simple adjustable shock like QA-1 or Viking will work just fine.

Earlier this year I ran 10.9s back to back at different tracks with stock suspension and a small torque converter. I have since moved to el paso so elivation is killing me on my times but I'm cutting 1.4s no problem with nitrous and 1.6s na here still.

Guess it's a good thing you didn't take it to a dealer. You might have left with a $1800 bill for a new exhaust system.
