I would recommend this kit for the rear of the car.

And this kit for the front of the car. http://midwestchassis.com/products/9...g-race-package. If you have any questions please give us a call.

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of pre-packaged "kits". That's why we don't offer many. There are too many variables to consider on each individual application to make a blanket one size fits all solution. Feel free to call me or PM me and we can go over the specifics of your application and needs and we can put something together that will deliver the best performance for your budget.

I'd go with Eric on this one. We tend to do the custom kits for these cars based on customer supplied info. Drag cars usually use our short torque arms. We have some awesome new lightweight, low friction front end components that are doing well. Shock valving changes on percentage of street vs strip as do spring rates.

Shoot us a message on here or at [email protected] and we can discuss.

thx

Thank you for the responses pms sent, I dont really care about "budget" I want to buy the best I can buy because I dont plan on getting rid of this car and only want to buy things once so I want the best even if I have to only buy a couple pieces at a time and cant afford to replace everything at once
