Full length subframe connectors are a must! No questions about it. They stiffened up my vert more then a Viagra convention. Since you are going to be running faster than 13.49 you will also need a 6point cage, if you run NHRA rules. That is a bonus though as that cage will really stiffen up your chassis. As far as any other suspension recommendations, I will leave that to the drag race experts.

Weld on FTW, k-member is more of a front end suspension upgrade, but i am doing it in my 98 Gt to make it a lil more roomy and easier to put LT's on it

forgot to mention the aftermarket k-members are a lil stronger and almost always lighter than stock ones.:cool:

No question about it, weld in. I have the Maximum Motorpsorts X-long Full Length ones. They go from the front to the rear. Excellent setup.

Any muffler shop should be able to do it. Just make sure whoever does it knows that ALL 4 wheels need to be on the ground/lift while they are being welded on.

I am gonna have to leave that one to the drag race experts. I am not really sure how to set a car up for drag.

pro dont lower alot, i think my front still sits high theirs a quart of oil in the front and still some space. On suspension, it depends on how good you wanna hook, this affects the car, it will become real stiff in the rear, so you will feel every bump. Theirs is adjustable or non adjustable and their is different material for the bushings. Ill take pics of the rear of my car when i find the camera
