I bought the rear suspension from a friend of mine today for $100.

It was on his car and I have seen it go mid 5s in the 1/8. He replaced the suspension with one that was fully adjustable after he went with a big block.

I also got the brakes- front and rear. He had just put them on about 3 months before he upgraded to Aeros (all aluminum or something like that). He told me after adding the BB he needed to shed a few pounds and he got a good deal on them. And they are 5 lug rotors.

I also got Moser axles (28 spline) 5 lugs.

And he gave me the center section with welded spider gears he used when he was running mid 5s. I am not sure about this one, but I am sure I will at least try it out. I f'd up and put it in the bed of my truck and it got a nice coating of sand, I am soaking it now to remove all the debris that it covering it.

I got everything above and a few other goodies (new MSD Blaster 3 coil for example) for $300 (including the suspension).

Good deal to me, what do you guys think?

Driveline wear with a spool adds up too. Welded gears are just like a spool only 20 lbs heavier.

I also bought UPR full length subframe connectors with lower torque box reinforcements and the UPR upper torque box reinforcement kit. I bought these new from UPR. Thanks Danielle (UPR) for your help.

accelerated tire wear... well.. it shouldnt be THAT bad.. unless he you know.. lives in a neighborhood with like.. 3 traffic circles to get out and drives in circles all day xD

im sure most his tire wear will be from laying rubber down on the road =)
