What Next

So I just got my upper and lower control arms in ,

Going to continue on with my suspension build along with the eaton swap.

Should I get a pair of full length subframes next ? Or get the UPR drag springs next ?

I currently have the Tokico HD strut/shock combo on , debating wether to get the 90/10 50/50 combo from latemodelresto after springs

Ill be getting some soon, everyone says those are one of the best suspension mods to do because you can actually feel the difference. On my mod list.

I know they stiffen the chassis .. But do they improve 60ft? Or help with delivering more power towards the back ?

They reduce flex in the chassis which is lost power..less energy loss through chassis more energy transfer to the wheels.

Any issues to note with the control arms? I will soon be in the process of changing mine.

Bolt are bolt on / weld
But I'm going to get them welded in

Control arms were a good upgrade , but I'm still sliding .. Hopefully these will help me hook up.
