Suspension upgrades needed?

Trying to figure out if I need any type of suspension upgrades at this time. My car launches well, no wheel spin. Right rear squats some. My thought is that since I don't have any wheel spin planting the rear any harder is not necessary at this time. I don't know a whole lot about suspension setups and would like to hear opinions from others.

If you're not spinning, then you're all set. If you add some power later and it starts spinning on the launch, then you can address it. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

Just installed a bigger cam, had the heads P&P and CMDP installed. Now I am spinning off the line. Track wasn't optimal, a little on the cool side. Running 275/60/15 MT drag radials. Never had an spinning problems before but now my 60' is 1.92 where I was getting 1.84's. I am hoping it was the track/weather. I know I have some more torgue now so don't know if that is the cause. I usually run 19-20 psi and went down to 17.5 psi and was getting a hair better. Was going to try 16.5 psi but the rains came so will have to wait a couple of weeks to try. Don't want to go any lower than that. To start I was thinking maybe some adjustable struts to get the front up quick. Any ideas?
