1981 monte carlo

I own a 1981 monte carlo, and was wondering what i should do to improve the suspension. ive got drop springs and drag shocks in it now and its not hooking up right. ive got a 425+hp 350 small block in it with a th375 tranny, 4.10 gears in the rear end, shift kit, and a 2700 stall. any suggestions?

What do you mean not hooking up right? Is it not wanting to get traction, or not wanting to go straight?

it launches straight, just wont get any traction. all i do is spin at the line. it didnt do it before i put the drop springs in it. i would take them back out but i like the way the car sits.
