How fast are you going to run?
There are cars that can easily run low 9's with the stock type suspension and there are a lot that are in the low 8's all w/o 4-link setups.

Unless you have bigger plans down the road you don't need mini tubs or fancy suspension. I run faster than that on UPR stock style rear stuff and 275 MTs. This is not bragging because my car is a turtle for what it is.

Make sure you reinforce the torque box area on the car via welding, torque box plates, or aftermarket torque boxes because after several hard launches the factory ones will tear. hope this helps

i just got their 9in rear end kit for my car. i have the skinny kid mini tubs. it all bolts to the stock places but it does it with 5/8bolts and not the stock bolts. how fast do u want to go and what cage do u have in the car is it mild steel or chromemoly. mild steel 10 point cage is good for 8.50 1/4 and a 10 point chromemoly is good for a 8.30 1/4. my friend has the same set up as i do his car ran like a 8.20 or 8.30 1/4 with there rear end kit. they sell both stock type and a 4 link kit
