Was told they hook the hardest, recently read they are not making them any more. Not sure if that's true. The guys I knew with fast DD's all ran mega bites. Though the ride quality wi suffer slightly, that's how you know they work lol as for price I don't know.

Yes they hook very well. Make sure you reinforce torque boxes and everything otherwise you will cause damage. They are hard on the body of the car

Yeah I've heard these are really hard. Definitely upgrade the torque boxes... and be ready to learn how to drive with a set of controll arms that feel welded in place... personally I prefer the lakewood or even bbk arms...

I did the plates and put huge welds all the way around it all and even another reinforcement plate under the car where the control arm bolts to the torque box. And im only running MM weight jackers on this car

Very nice! I've seen stock boxes rip out of rotted boxes!

If its a DD its a little overkill. They are awesome parts but for streets MM will do just as well, less noise, and better ride/handling. Im actually a fan of BMR as well

So should I look into Lakewood? Mm? What would be the best for me? I rarely see the track but I do want something that will hook with the 315s and a v1 t-trim I am in the process of getting

Okay I'll have to look into them. Do they offer different ones or what should I be looking for?

Also, do I need both uppers and lowers? Or will just one or the other work for me?

I run MM weight jackers and love them. MM make several different styles(different bushings) and i think bmr now makes them with urethane bushings and spherical but not 100% sure. Lowers are most important. Uppers not as much but if adjustable they allow you to dial in your pinion angle
