Putting power to the ground

What mods does everyone reccomend to put their power to the ground? I'm already pushing the engine to the max, now I would like to make sure it's getting to the ground. So what suspension mods does everyone use for drag racing? I have a 2000 GT

What is your budget & what do you currently have on the car from a suspension standpoint?

Feel free to email me at tim@steeda.com for pricing & package support ... we have several drag racers who work in our sales, engineering & manufacturing dept. ... I am sure we can tailor a package to fit your needs!



Best Regards,

For rear shocks, Double adjustable QA1 would be the best.

A single adjustable would be a lower cost option.

Hope that helps!

Let me know if I can help further!

The most common setup seems to be:
1. Good quality, welded, sub-frame connectors.
2. Good quality, aftermarket lower control arms.
3. The stickiest rear tires that you can find! Or afford...

I'm not familiar with Steeda control arms but unless the uppers have OEM style rubber bushings, I do not recommend using them, or any other aftermarket upper control arms, without doing some serious strengthening to the upper control arm chassis mount.

Stray is right about the uppers. Aftermarket solid uppers induce very dangerous snap oversteer... Not a good idea. Also car needs to be dropped and new suspension is pretty much required at the age these cars are at anyway.

Define "pushing the engine to the max"

Might help a bit with some suggestions.

^^^This

There are guys out there who consider every possible bolt on they can throw at a 2V "pushed to the max"..not saying that you are but some reference to your mods and power level will help determine the best applications.

Subframe connectors will stiffen the chassis and reduce body roll to some extent. For the price and install (if applicable) it's worth it imo.

I recommend weld in full lengths over bolt ins. Easy enough to do if you can weld, if not then you're looking at probably an hour's labor to get them welded in.

You may be able to find some cheap off a junkyard car or buy a set online.
