LCA Questions

Im in need of some suspension mods to help get more useable power from my car. I spin my wheels pretty bad through first and some through second gear. I was wondering if new Lower Control Arms would help with this.

They will help a lot, if you get the lower and upper control arm you should be set. And you can get both of those for about 200 bucks new.

Im not lowered. I herd that lowering can hurt your 1/4 mile times because of weight transfer or something...... just something I herd. I would like to lower my ride but im not going to if it hurts my 1/4 mile.... also have the speed bump from hell by my house that I think will rub if I lower.

But good to know, LCA and UCA will be my next suspension mod...... can anyone recommend a brand?

I was saying 1/4 wise mine got a little better. I want to get them but I'm saving up for a turbo lol unless I find used ones!

Small investment for a substantial difference, made a huge difference for me... U can have all the power u want under the hood, most important thing before that is getting the power to the ground IMHO

I completely agree that's why I hot 285s and I'll probably get them soon I just spent a lot of money on wheels and tires and suspension. Thanks for the info though I'll probably pick some up

lowering your car with the right springs as in not being soft springs will improve your 1/4 mile time. lowering your car improves the weight transfer with less body roll etc. also i saw a video with a 12 gt on eibach spring/stuts and sway bars improve 0-60 by .12 What i mean by the right springs(aka spring rates) is for example bc coilovers are good for the street but when it comes to racing or taking corners they are not stiff enough. Eibach springs are very good for lowering springs and good for track also. If you want just purely springs for 1/4 mile times then some good options are KWV 3's but they are expensive around $2500 and are soft enough for the street actually. QA1's are good too but I have only seen them for the fronts only on a 2011+. Tein makes really good coilovers but are a little too stiff for the street. Budget wise you could get Koni shocks and pair with Eibach springs and be just as good as the full coilover systems. Tire wise either Nitto NT555 or NT05 I prefer NT05 they seem sticker in corners and straights to me compared to nt555.
