I have always heard that stock WS6 shocks are excellent. I have Konis which are nice but not cheap. But BMR is running a special on Konis and lowering springs right now for an awesome price. Are you more interested in launching or handling?

I got my eibach pro springs on craigslist for cheap brand new in the box for $150. Just check around before you go and by new, youll be surprised on what you can find.

I dont know much about drag setups, but if you are looking for drive-ability and improved handling. I would recommend Strano springs and Billsteins. The stock spring rates are horrible from a handling perspective.
