This will absolutely help you at the track. It's also good for lowered cars to correct the pinion angle! Upper and Lower Control arms will help you put the power you have to the ground and give you good weight transfer.

There's a ton of awesome brands out there. SR Performance, J&M, JPC etc... will all do the trick!

My opinion is that YES aftermarket UCA and LCAs are a must especially for drag racing. Stock my car had bad wheel hop. Added the Steeda LCAs and got more traction and less wheel hop. Then added Steeda UCA and even more traction with no wheel hop. Then did Steeda sport springs and BMR relo brackets and WOW! Super traction.Totally different car and can't wait to get to the track next month. Def recommend all of the above.

Get in touch with jayman33 on here. He works at hypermotive performance and has great prices and awesome customer service. I went with BMR adjustable upper and non-adj lower control arms with relocation brackets, bmr adj. panhard bar, koni str.t shock/struts, ford k springs with gt500 mounts. My car just sticks (wells spins ) and goes no more wheel hop at all. Now i just need some better tires

Yeah the suspension was all done. Remember you had mentioned to move the lca to the middle hole and not the top i got it changed and didn't notice much of a difference. But the lca seems to be at more of a flat angle .Thanks Dave!

Yea I remember now. The only time you'll really notice a difference is on hard launches.
