I don't really plan on running slicks anytime soon but I will look into sub frame connectors. Is there multiple times of them and if so which ones are the best and why?

Do you have any suspension done MD? If I remember you said you had springs (could be wrong), you have anything else?

If this is my daily driver how bad would those drag race Lakewood 90/10 shocks be on the street?

What started this topic is when I emailed Steeda about wether or not i could fit 305/35/18 Nitto 555rs on my steeda ultra lites (18x9) and basically he asked if i had control arms done to help plant the power to the big tires I wanted in the rear. I said no and he said I should look into it so I just wanted some suggestions as to anything else I should along with control arms.

Will I notice a decent difference with the sub frame connectors?
Ive got control arms, srpings, and subframe connectors. 90/10's arent great on the street 70/30's would be a good mix or go with some adjustable struts from Strange their cheap and good. Steeda probably recommended control arms because you'd likely have to remove the quad shocks (which control wheelhop) to fit that big of a tire.

i hear alot of people saying 90/10's aren't good for the street, but i have had no problems with mine. my stang is my daily driver and its all gravy for me...

I didnt mean to sound like they weren't streetable, but he said he wont be drag racing much and just wants better traction and 70/30's are just more friendly for that. I hear lots of folks runnin 90/10's and not sway bar and say it drives fine, but you've gotta drive your car differently and I doubt that many people will care for that

I would not recommend 90/10 front struts for the street use car as they are for drag racing use only. they alter the way the suspension works and most drivers couldn't handle it in an emergency situation.
I used HPM Mega-byte Jr. lower control arms and their adjustable upper control arms with good results on the strip.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I have what i want narrowed down pretty well now.

I think I am going with steeda aluminum upper and lower control arms, fox springs upfront, cut stock spring in the back. Steeda weld in subframe connectors, and some 70/30 struts, not sure on the brand yet though.
