should be night and day for ya. Before I had mine done, if I floored it I would spin for three telephone poles, and after it would spin for no more than a few feet. Good luck.

While you're under there, check the other weak points - u-joints.

Not that I usually get involved with discussions, but I have built and tuned some pretty quick leaf spring cars/trucks. The last two 60 footed 1.40's consistantly with stock suspensions on MT drag radials (275 60 15's). The one lacking componet in this discussion and by far the most important thing on a leaf spring truck is pinion angle. This will make the biggest difference in 60 ft, as well as shifting traction in my experience. Drag radials (MT's) seem to like negative 4 to 6 degrees (aggressive track/street racing) of pinion angle (keep in mind trans output angle is part of that figure). You will need to do a burnout, despite what I have read here. 18 psi (depending on size of the tire) seems to be a good starting, point up or down .5 psi at a time (16 or 17 psi pre burnout). I would do your burnout in 2nd gear, hold the line lock till you start to see smoke and release the line lock and let the truck push out. It will bog when you launch, so you will have to learn how to walk out the clutch and keep the motor up in the RPM's (without a 2 step, otherwise change launch RPM with a 2 step). Depending on a million variables such as weight distibution, shock valving, spring rates, open or posi/spooled (welded diff?), and power torque you will see a significant improvement in your 60 ft times. Anything you pick up in the 60 ft will pay big dividends in 660ft and 330ft ET's. MPH not so much. The one draw back will be the truck will "wallow" on hard braking or decelleration if you use a ET street, Hoosier QTP, non radial slick, or even the sportsman PRO. These sidewalls are thin and when they are not loaded will squirm. Not a big deal if you don't panic and over correct. Sorry for going off, but this is something I have done since the 90's and have alot of actual experience with. I hate seeing people throw money at ineffective solutions. Tires will only make so much difference without a chassis set up to compliment them.
