Default would my car lift if...

i was curious if i bought shocks & struts, lowering springs, and rear control arms (upper and lower) and removed my A/C, smog and front swaybar would my car pick up in the front at all??? if not, what else would i need to do. by saying lift up i do not mean getting the tires off the ground, i am asking if the body would go up.

everything you listed, but instead of lowering springs keep your stock springs in the rear and put 4cyl springs in the front. and drag radials.

Why is it so important for you to have your car lift up on a launch? And why on Earth would you want to delete your A/C and smog? [sm=wtf.gif]

a good suspension setup is all you would need, if thats all you want to do. the wheels will come off the pavement a good 3-6 inches with a stock motor and $3k into the suspension

Yeah try that out here in Central CA where it's well over a 100F all summer long. You'd wish you had a stock Mustang with a full charge of 134a. [sm=trust_me.gif]
