I got the same Year model car, its got a 355 with a lil Nitrous on it.
As far as the rear of the car. we have gone with summits 3-way adjustable shocks and recently put in "Drag Bags" offered by AirFlow. This should improve your 60 ft. times, over the stock susp.
Also look into Sub-Frame Connectors
