As much as I would like to stay on stock suspension for my simplistic build, I'm at a cross. I've searched and didn't really come up with what I was looking for.

BMR drag packs come in two configurations for magneride, Forced induction and Naturally Aspirated.N/A is about 1.1" front drop, .5" rear, with less spring rate in front than the FI. FI is a .5"/.5" all around.

I currently have a set of Steeda 1" magneride drops sitting in my garage while I contemplate.

This build is a simple VMP Odin on a PP1 magneride equipped 2019. I'm looking for the most effective street setup for 60ft/ 1/8th mile since we do not have any local 1/4 tracks in my area. I have the typical BMR/Steeda goodies for the rear (links/bushings/cradle/etc) but am at a loss on lowering.

I'm leaning towards the N/A springs because of the rate, and the lower drop in the front. Anybody experienced going this route on an FI car?

Thanks!

I run the Magnaride Steeda Sport springs 1" drop (555-8242). Spring Rates are 170 lb/in F & 715 lb/in R.

I run a Whipple system and she handles just fine with the slightly softer spring rates, compared to the OEM's. I do not launch the vehicle from digs, but i do roll runs and she stays planted. She doesnt squat too much or get loose on me when using any of the Magnaride modes at WOT.

I also run the Steeda Drag Sway Bar with some of their IRS components.
