Time and money has caused it to take almost 4 yrs to get the replacement car for the Cutlass. 87 Monte Carlo SS Aero Coupe. Hit the bars on the hit and spun the tires most of the 1/8th mile. Went 6.04/110 Click on the youtube link for video. Too long to post here. https://youtu.be/2Vl3BQz0n5E

Thanks for the kind words. Will need some suspension/wheelie bar tuning(may take them off). As for the video police what do you feel you are missing? Being in the car it is obvious I didn't take the video. Lucky there was somebody there to take it. It's all about the car and not the surrounding fluff.

I'll throw my 2 cents at you - I was having a similar problem with the suspension unloading (like you) which was fixed with some tuning and also found the suspension too tight and not being able to move. The sway bar bushing being a large part of the problem.Went with adjustable control arms and hyme joints and got the sway arm moving freely. Solved my problem and give you somewhere to start.
