They can work but are not optimal according to everyone running better 60 foots then me. I have cut 1.73's pretty consistently on a good track and 1.75's on a bad track. My car transfers weight pretty well due to an aluminum block though.
I assume you have eibach's now?
A note on bushings since it was mentioned. You need to check them often if racing or hot dogging on the street alot. I have to replace my sway bar bushings and rear knuckle bearings on a yearly basis. The knuckle bushings make it two to three years but delrin would be better in my opinion.
All this to say that tires play the most important part of your suspension setup. Slicks or cheater slicks are all I use now. I don't even bother with trying to get traction on the street. It's pointless unless you run drag radials or really wide tires. At least for me. Hence why I drive like an old person on a daily basis.
