I set up my car for handling, but have driven in cars that have drag launch springs/suspensions. If this is your daily driver those 90/10 springs and front skinnies are gonna get old quick. Driving in the rain would be the best reason for not doing it. 2 of my car club buddies have already changed back to a stock type handling spring for the street. They are fortunate enough at this point in their lives to be able to have both type of cars. 1 for drags and 1 for street. Seriously consider the pros and cons before doing anything. Good Luck!

You sort of answered your own question... You said the car will be geared more toward the track. If by track, you mean dragstrip you should use these:

1979-2004 Ford Mustang UPR Pro Series Drag Launch Springs by Eibach - UPR Products

But if you meant roadrace or autocross, these would be a better choice than the sportlines:

1979-2004 Ford Mustang V8 UPR Pro Series Lowering Springs by Eibach at UPR Products - Lifetime Warranty!

(I can PM you a 10% discount code if you want either of those)

That was supposed to be some sort of vibration dampener that was tuned for the stock ring & pinion. They say if you've changed your rear gear you can remove the weight. I always remove them and have never had any problems with it.

Race orientated vehicles are better all around IMHO and g's are addictive!
