What next ?

Alrighty guys ,

So far .. I did

1. short throw shifter
2. O/R X pipe & mufflers
3. Springs
4. Tokico HD Struts & Shocks
5. Upper & Lower control arms , Took off Quads

What should I do next? I want more suspension .. I was thinking the Full length subframes, torque arm is out of my price range .. Looking for something not crazy expensive

( More of a drag car )

Steeda full lengths without a doubt. Subframes will DRASTICALLY improve the way the car feels and drives.

After that if the torque arm is out of your price range maybe start saving up for a front K member/coilover kit. UPR usually does specials for the winter holidays every year and is a good piece. Will not set the world on fire for handling but it is a good improvement over stock, is $1k less than the MM stuff, is actually a better setup for drag/straight line than the MM due to weight and its strong enough to DD no problem.

Steeda Rear Strut Tower brace ( Read it would help with Flex )

Steeda Full length subframes ( Welded )

Battery relocate to trunk



Sound like a good next step ?

Once you get the subframes in the car will stiffen the hell up, IMO the rear strut tower is not needed. A front one would be good to have tho. Battery relocation is always a good idea to help with weight distribution.
