suspension upgrade

Im thinking about installing subframe connectors, strut tower brace, upper and lower tubular control arms on my 92 hatchback, will there be a huge difference? Ps why is it recommended to remove quad shocks?

Yes, the car will be much less "flexible" and able to transfer the power to the ground better.
You remove the quad shocks after installing aftermarket rear control arms because you will no longer need them and to lose the weight of an unneeded part.

i dont know which arms you have or are getting. but some arms change the geometry of the suspension, which may just cause a bind. also, all the quad shock does is prevent wheel hop. a good set of arms will eliminate the wheel hop anways.

Only by accident. Typing speed is not my forte by any means.
