Yeah we talked on instagram not long ago. I have the loop and differential ones and had bad wheel hop and since I did the lower arms it's gone.

I'll have to do some searching and find out more about this, I'm so glad my car isn't MRC.

I think I'd rather change the sway bar endlinks and load up each side individually and do the cradle lock outs before going springs, and if I did, I'd go with the Viking adjustable rear shocks. Just my .02

Going to finish dialing in my tune this week and hopefully get some e in it and see what it does with the new converter and lower control arms.

After I put the converter in I was making small hits and got really bad wheel hop and ended up tearing up the center support on the stock driveshaft. That's when I got the chromoly driveshaft and new lower control arms.

At some point we have to figure this out. Fastest 60ft I've seen anyone do is a 1.29 but that has definitely been the exception not the rule. Most of the pretty fast ones I've seen have been in the 1.30's. I think people have been throwing their money at making more power and not too many people have spent up in the suspension department. (I did the same thing lol) But now I'm trying to catch up on the suspension components and try to find out what works well to get up there with the mustang guys doing 1.1's

My best on stock suspension was 1.38 and with the BMR uppers control arms and upper and lower trailing arms has been 1.35. Could have been the track prep, not sure. I'm consistently in the mid to upper 1.30s. I went 5.99@119 with a 1.38 60ft.
