I'm looking to do some more upgrades to try to get more hp to the pavement, so far I have installed Steeda full length subframe connectors, UPR upper and lower control arms and (urethane?)bushings, 3.55 gears and trac loc rebuilt (new clutches) Tokico Illumina 5 way adjustable shocks and struts, new King Cobra clutch kit with new billet steel flywheel. What other upgrades would you guys reccomend???

What suggestions do you have for the front besides a tubular K member? That's already on my list!

umm back to the rear end..rip out those stock 28spliners...put in some moser axles...might as well do 5lug conversion at same time...and i'd get a thicker rear sway bar...do you have an aluminum driveshaft? also i'd look into some 90/10 front struts and 50/50 shocks out back

How is the ride with those shocks and struts? this car will see the strip occasionally but will be a more of a street car, but I want it to be able to get on the throttle and it stick when the time comes.

i don't have any problems, my car has an auto and it hooks really good on the street, i roll out just a little and floor it and it hardly spins at all, i beat a 10 sec big block monte with nitrous and 12 inch slicks on the street, i left him big time

he doesn't need 50/50s he's got adjustables, 28s will be fine especially on the street, and a 5 lug conversion isn't necessary

Reinforced the tq boxes when we put in the sub connectors and have the underdrives on already. I'm currently looking into the fan and battery relocation. The aluminum driveshaft will have to wait a little bit, can't afford $300 just yet. Thanks for all the input and suggestions!!!

Sorry for the derail, but I noticed you have the UPR U/L CAs. Non-adjustables? How do you like them? Thinking about picking up a set...

They are the non adjustable and there great, noticed a big difference once I installed them. There are probably better, more expensive ones but these have been great for me.

Rear girdle??? Is that the the same as the rear end cover, 10-12 bolts fasten it to where you install your gears and such?? ? if not please explain.
