Tell us more about the car. Street, race, street/strip, how fast, tranny, etc.

I would try some TRZmotorports adjustable uppers and lowers. These control arms are fantastic. They have been on 15 seconds cars all the way to single digit cars. Check out their website www.trzmotorsports.com, they have pics. If you call them talk to Mike Brash and tell him I sent you, he should hook you up.

i ended up getting a good deal on a used set of upr's but i didnt pay attention and forgot abotu the sway bar mounts as these dont have any so i guess i either dont use them or have to go to a anti roll bar.

Should have gone with Kevin, his stuff is awesome. UPR sucks IMO. You don't need a rear sway bar, save your nickels and dimes and get the whole shebang from Kevin at Baselinesuspensions.com.

New times coming soon.....

x1000! I've got his uppers w/Metco lowers. Made close to 20 passes already and it just keeps on getting quicker out of the hole. I'm down to 1.60 in my sixty foot, can't wait to see a 1.5x!
And this is on a track that has no traction compound (VHT)!

Any suggestions Kevin?

Another vote for Baseline...I went from 1.70's 60' on a radial (low 11 car) to 1.60 flat on the same tire with nothing other than his upper control arm kit.
