Re: ZQ8 suspension... is it the best for handling
coilover shocks for the front. If you're on a budget, the zq8 stuff will have you out corner stis and evos on good rubber. more than that and you're looking at coilover fronts, revised steering arms, possibly adjustable control arms and a good road race link suspension rear or independent rear from a vette. frame bracing too, like an X brace under the box and K brace in front of the engine really helps too. but you're getting into a lot of money and time at that point.
GM (the username on here) has the full zq8 suspension on his truck minus a different set of coils and with 18s and good rubber he's having a lot of fun. I'm sure for a while you'll have plenty of that before you think about upgrading.
1983 sonoma GT
355 SBC 300-325HP, th350 2600 stall
8.5" rear, 3.08 and zq8 power steering
