Drag Spring Questions

First off thanks for the add!

So I’ve been looking at Pedders website and I’m thinking I will go with the X-Drag rear springs, but a buddy of mine has a set of HD Drag springs that he bought a couple of years ago. My questions are: what’s the difference between the older HD Drag springs and the new X-Drags? Are there any other manufacturers of rear drag springs that will lift the back of the car enough to not rub my 26x10.5s?

How 'bout some spacers ? You can buy 'em at Jegs, Summit, Amazon & Ebay.

Many A-body guys use air bags, especially on drag cars. I always used 'em, with more air in the right side, for traction.

There are all sorts of suspension aids, such as adjustable control arms. But, I realize this is not what the OP asked about.
