I plan on getting new rims soon and am going to go staggered. I will also end up getting nitto's for just the back. Should I install upper and lower control arms in the back. AM has sr performance ones with polyurethane bushings for like $170 for all 4 of them. Will I notice a difference from a dead stop wot or should I leave the stock alone. Btw its a 94 gt pretty much stock except a few minor bolt ons. Also I am installing 4:10'a soon so the axle is coming out anyway. Anyone recommend a posi locker aswell, I wanted to go with eaton but 3 ppl in the comments said it exploded on them after 25 passes. I'm leaning towards an auburn posi now.

the SR control arm are good. A little heavier than stockers but i did the swap and i noticed more ground control, better traction and cornering. I did shocks and 1.5 lowering springs too.

New control arms are always worth it.

8.8 is plenty strong. 31 spline axles and cobra diff is good for 9's.

I'm just looking to upgrade my posi while I upgrade my gears to 4:10's. A 9" is overkill for me. I was just wondering what carrier I should buy. I had my heart set on eaton but they have terrible reviews so I'm thinking of an auburn.
