Upper or Lower Control arms

Ok so i am looking for mods for better traction at the track. My 18x9/10s with tires are on their way so now i need control arms. I will probably only be able to afford either upper or lower right now, so which would be better for traction at the line? I have a 2001 Bullitt.

I'm pretty sure lower control arms are better for more bite. I wouldn't get upper control arms if I were you because in my opinion it would be better to save your and get a torque arm and panhard bar and ultimately get rid of the upper control arms all together. The torque arm and panhard bar make the upper control arms unnecessary with each one taking over one of the jobs the open control arm is doing saving you about 30lbs and making for a much better rear suspension.

It will probably end up being after I get back from my backpacking trip on the 16th I believe it is. So that following Wednesday night. I'll be back on the 28th for a few days but idk if I'll be able to go that Wednesday.
