Default chassis set-up advice

I really could use some insight and understanding into this car-3200 lbs.-51.5% front-48.5% rear-52% left side-104" wheelbase-crank height 12 3/4"-cam height approx 19"-600" alum bb-1100 hp on motor-two stages of nos-first off the transbrake-second on timer at approx .4 later-powerglide trans 1.80 first gear-4.30 rear gear-33x16.5x15 stiff sidewalls-last run with IC of 53 1/2 and 6 1/4 high-am changing to 56 1/4 and 3 1/2-single adj rear shocks set at one softer than med-adj front struts set at full firm-has rear sway bar that is 1 1/2" in diameter and the arms are 7" long-car torque rolls fairly heavily and hits the wheelie bars fairly hard-spins downtrack on the shift-best 60' is 1.158-what should I expect to see from the changes I have made? Generally what should the car do different when you raise or lower the height of the IC but have the same approx. length? What changes should I be making to help 60' times and keep it off the bars so hard? If I want to adjust the car for more "bite", what adjustment and IC numbers should I be shooting for? Don't have any video yet, but hope to soon. thanks for any and all answers and help and insight you can give. thanks again--Micah 6:8
