    With no more HP than you expect to have, i would think just a set of slapper bars would work just fine. I've seen cars work with them with a lot more HP.

    I am planning to clamp the front half also--we might try the slappers first [caltracs can get expensive!!!] :roll:

    I'd also take that overload leaf off, unless you plan to carry a heavy load, and add a good set of 50/50 shocks.

    A long time ago we ran a 431" b/blk 67 Camero conv. That ran 10.89 @ 127 MPH, with the mono-leaf spring and slapper bars.
