Do the front end work first. Do everything you can to make the front end to move as freely as possible.

I tried to video it, sorry for the quality.. but you should get the point, what clutch tried to say..
No shock is going to fix the movement when the arms does not move.

Looks like you had the same Idea . That setup works great If the track is decent all I have to do is squeak the 295x65x15 drag radials and it hooks great. up

I use to use the 1st gen Dakota drop spindles and the 14 inch wheel rotors( I think they are 10.5 Dia.
Rear shocks were always relocated to a straight up and down location.
B body rear springs with the front hanger moved back 4 inches.

The other thing to do if you have the cash to spend is do a FATMAN conversion for the pre71 trucks, , takes about 150 of the nose of these trucks.

Clutch , love that truck of yours
I'll have my 75 4x2 Ramcharger out next year with a G3 Hemi, pulling the 440 out and slow it down to mid 10s ,
