    Anyone using Lakewood drag shocks ?

    I’m interested in getting them but wanted to know if they are worth it and if they are bad on a daily driver .

    I had their 50/50 rears on my Challenger for a couple years, with front drag coilovers. When I pulled them to replace with Viking adjustable shocks, I found that they were failing (very loose rebound and compression) after less than two years daily driving and racing (~15k miles and maybe 30 passes).
    My 2 cents, spend a little more now and look into the Viking rears and A2speed’s 3 way adjustable front coilover option (that utilizes Viking shocks). They are works of art in performance and quality.

    I had 50/50 rears and 70/30 up front with R/T springs. I was worried it would suck to drive daily, but it's fine. I believe it to have helped with launches as well, but I changed them in conjunction with a few other mods, so it's hard to say. The rears went out after two years and I went back to nivomats. my launches were considerably straighter with those with a comparable 60'.

    Recently installed Lakewood 50/50 rears and 70/30 fronts. Was worried about ride on the street but barely notice a difference. I actually like them better for highway cruising. They have definitely improved 60' and ET. I dropped three tenths ET adding the Lakewoods and 1 lb of boost.

    I want to tweak suspension further to improve 60' even more. Have the Lakewoods on with stock SRT8 front and rear springs at the moment.

    Anyone have any recommendations for other springs to try?
