Control arms on the car!

I finally got around to Putting these UPR pro series double adjustable control arms on my car, removed sway bars, and put my drag pack back on! Soon to head to my local 1000' track tomorrow! For the little drive home from the shop to home they worked great and I didn't have any wheel hop or walking rearend problems. Car felt planted to the ground. Hopefully this fixes my unload at start line problem!

What all suspension mods do you have that allows you to remove the sway bars? Wouldn't those help?

He is drag racing so the sway bars aren't needed... Most drag racers do this. You can pick up a couple tenths off your time

Tokico shocks and struts, eibach Sportline springs, UPR control arms, and mm caster camber plate up front... I took them off because, my suspension was unloading before the 60' so bad it looked like I was shifting. But you can't hear the gears changing. Plus I got some weight reduction with all those extra bolts. Lol.

With as hard as your launching you should get some full length subframe connectors welded in.

Yeah I was checking my torque box/welds and subframe last night, while I had it on the lift. They looked okay for now... Probably gonna break something after this round at the track today with the control arms.
