I have Koni Yellow shocks, Steeda Sport Springs, MM Panhard Bar.

I plan on doing the TQ arm down the road.

It will handle very well. I road race my car. The rear is solidly planted to the ground.. like glue. Problem is the front. I get major push on the track.

Cant help you with the drag racing part, but I really like the PH bar setup.

lol my bad i never really answerd your question though.
yes it will help out your drag. ANYTHING to keep that rear from moving and twisting out of place will be bennifical. and a PHB and a tourqe arm is a great direction to go in. others might break it down more.

I am not a fan of the LCA's you run due to the poly/poly bushings in them :( I recommend you upgrade to some poly/spherical ones as well as the PHB / TA set-up. You will be VERY impressed with how tame your car can be with good rear suspension. As for drag, I would not recommend the PHB / TA "specifically" for drag, but have spoken with some very well respected suspension pepes that say it can be benificial. I am not a drag guy, so I take their word for it :yes

What are you currently doing to avoid axle wrap? Are you running a single stock UCA? If so, which side did are you using?

Jazzer :)

EDIT: Forest is correct about the TA as a big benifit to drag and glad he corrected me during the time I was actually mis-speaking!

watts link/torque arm are the way to go, throw quality lowers, 10-way adjustable shocks and coil overs on the rear and you don't get any better.
