I took my 64 Fairlane to the drags for the first time this summer. I picked up several tenths after the first run or two. Later that night I discoverd that my right rear air shock had come apart. In its new "z" shape, it was locking the rear suspension. The only give in the suspension was in the 205/60R15 BFG radial. Now the questions:
1)Does locking the suspension help traction, or was it just the learning curve of a first time dragracer?
2)Is the broken shock a sign of severe spring wrap-up?
3)Will a set of CalTracs keep me from breaking more shocks? (Gotta justify the expense to the wife.)
