Suspension / Weight Transfer

Alright guys just wanted to get some opinions on some good suspension parts , and a good car diet to help weight transfer .. that'll help out at the Drag strip , but won't affect drivability on the street for us daily drivers.

So far I currently just have

Lower control arms
Upper control arms
Full length subframe connectors
Tokico struts and shocks
Caster camber plates
Cut springs

I was thinking deleting rear seats , relocating battery to trunk , buying some drag wheels ( my 18s are heavy ) , any easier options besides the obvious k member , a arms, etc.
Thanks

What would you recommend? I love a low stance. Just can't afford coil overs.

Stock springs and multi adjustable shocks. You want the rear end relatively soft.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

The only way to have the car that low and also have better weight transfer is coilovers.

Any aftermarket spring is going to be stiffer than stock, meaning less squat on launch. And cutting them is just a huge no if you care about performance at all.

You have to ask yourself this.... Which do you want more, being super low and stanced? Or having actual performance? Unless you spend the extra $ on coilovers or springs with multi adjustable shocks (that combined will be near the cost of coilovers anyway) you can't have both.

Also, rule #1 about performance. Stay away from SR.

can you constantly adjust your ride height with coil overs or is a alignment needed each time?

SR lowering springs are OK from all the things I have read online. But who knows about their coil overs.

Your alignment I'm sure would need adjustment if your camber was off enough and you planned on riding at that height for an extended period of time.

If you change ride height it changes all other geometry so you need an alignment.

My coilovers are costing a little over double that.
