Just installed Steeda Spherical Lower Control Arm. This was expensive but it is well worth it. Car just hooks and takes off now.

Word to the wise, American Muscle recommended I need relo brackets since my car is lowered. It hooks fine and no wheel hop without them. Saved 150 bucks on re-lo brackets.

Roush stage 2 suspension package. I have no idea what springs it's using. Probably Ford Racing (it's blue)?

I think they're like 1.5f 1r but I am not positive.

I think the need for brackets hinges on what the angle of the arms ends up at after lowering. Am I correct?

I think you are correct. My neighbor who is a home grown Ford lover and a restorer stated that bracket is necessary if angle downward is excessive. If LCA is pretty straight with little slight angle, bracket is not really needed.

Well the brackets can be very useful as a tuning tool to dial in your suspension. For the street, if it doesn hop you probably don't want to mess with them. But at the track you can use it to dial in anti squat %. This will effect if your car squats or lifts when you launch it. Adjusting the angle and changing the instant center will determine how hard or soft your tires will hit. So depending on track conditions and how your car is set up, having the adjustability of the brackets can make a huge difference in 60' times.

Normally, I would say this is not-related, but with the new IRS of the S550, I think it matters...
What methods would you use to dial in the suspension for launches when using an IRS?
I had an IRS car, and my biggest headache was keeping the camber from being excessively negative on launch when the car would squat.

Installed my sound deadening material over my weekend. I did the inside of the doors that I could reach behind the speakers. Ford already did a lot of that area though, so it that saved material. I did some areas in the trunk, on the rear speakers deck underside, and will do under the back seat and trim this weekend. I put some on the backs of the door panels as well, and wedged some cardboard between the switch plates and trim. All the rattle's I was having issue's with before are gone. I ordered 9 sheets of the stuff and so far used 4. So I have a lot left to do wherever I want. Not a bad 35 or so bucks spent in my opinion.

Found a boost leak. Sealed it up and now the car goes way too lean under throttle. Have to start all the way over with tuning

Well basically you don't want your car to squat. When your car squats in the rear you are actually unweighting the tires. You want your axle to push down which actually means the rear of your car is lifting. This is done by manipulating your anti-squat % by changing the angles of your control arm which changes your instant center. Now too much anti-squat is not good either because usually the harder your tires hit the shorter the amount of time they will hold that hit. It's a balancing act. So with good relocation brackets you will have some adjust-ability with the angles to dial it in wherever you need it to be.

I've never set up an IRS car for drag racing but I'm assuming the same basic principles apply, but how to go about changing that may be different. Either way you want the rear to stay level or lift on launch, not squat down.
