    Next mod help.

    My next mod is either springs or lcas and Phb. Its my dd and I race, Street or track. I would like someone's input that has these mods and what kind of difference will I see if I put the lcas and phb on? I understand what they do but is it a big difference?

    Yes, more so then the springs. I, myself am going through the same dilemma. After listening and talking it over with some of the others here I've got my mind made up about 80% sure I'm going to get a new TA, LCA's and PHB after I get some answers from UMI about how my setup and their products will match.


    Those three items I mention will help eliminate wheel hop and spin and let you launch pretty straight out the gates.


    Have you gotten SFC's yet? If not I recommend those be the priority. Our cars can flex even under stock power.


    I had to change out my springs last Christmas because of spring sag.

    My springs are in good shape, little soft in the back but no problems. I'll do springs next paycheck and when o sell my bike ill have at least 1500 to play with.

    People who lower their cars with aftermarket spring have to run relocation brackets on their rearend to get the LCA to work correctly. When you start buying aftermarket suspention parts make sure you get the adjustable parts and not the nonadjustable. It will make a big difference when you start trying to hook up at the track.

    I'm happy with my nonadjustable edelbrock rear lower arms, adjustable would've been better, if I hadthe money at the time. The eiback sportline springs were really nice on SMOOTH curvy backroads and straight pulls butbwere too low and stiff for my daily driving so I settled for summits springs on a budget. They're a decent mexium between the stock and sportlines, but in a couple years after upgrading brakes and wheels, I'll try hotchis or somethingelse. Have my first kid on the way so I have to worry about keeping it running right more than making it "better."so, I have some barely used eibachs if anyone is interested...

    I don't really consider my car lowered in the sense like everyone else does. When I put on my Hotchkis Springs (1" Drop) I actully gained about 1.5 inches. If you take from the top of the wheel well and go straight through the center of the wheel my car sits at 26.5 " all around. With the springs, SFC's, TSB 17" wheels & Nitto NT555 tires it feels like it is on rails already. Can't wait till what I just order comes in. TA, LCA, TA relocate kit, & PHB

    I got the Hotchkis springs and are really liking them. Strano springs I hear are even better. If I wear these out I'll try them next.
