    if you are putting down anywhere near 500rwhp, yes it is definitely suspension and powertrain upgrade time.

    i just hope the tranny and rear end hold up for a year so i can focus on the suspension.

    I would do the rear first as it's probably the 1st thing that's going to break. However, I realize that the rear is probably the most expensive thing to get at this point. Just remember, while you're upgrading suspension, that means more traction and power to the wheels...which in turn, means more power going through your rear end. Hope she lasts for ya!

    I have the 9" and she's taken all the abuse I've thrown at her so far.
    It's on jackstands.

    I don't track mine much either, but I liked having complete piece of mind. When I shift it at WOT in every gear it dead hooks on the street. Though rare, I've seen one or two 12 bolts break. Granted that could have been because of how the rear end was initially set-up or the car was pushing an extreme amount of power. Usually people tell you the rule of thumb is A4 = 12 bolt and M6 = 9".

    Some people frown on putting a Ford piece on their Chevy though
