    Well I got mine from Spohn Performance and I'd say welding is the best way. It might be a little over kill for the street, but the only thing I'd use at the track.

    You might not need them ts|s I would wait to see how your car rides first.

    Just check your pinion angle to see if you are okay.

    i've used bolt ins with no issues. if you feel you have one after you install them, you can weld the bolt ons in.
