    Street racer

    Can someone please tell me what suspension parts I will need to upgrade to have a good daily driven,night street racing car. Money is an big factor so I don't want to spend more than $2,000 on parts not including the brakes. That is an different issue.

    well two of the first things which is basically what everybody says is to get a good set of subframe connectors..

    I bought mine from UMI for around $150. Got them welded in for $200 but that seems to be pretty high compared to what other people have paid, but it was the only place in my area to get it done.

    The other one is an aftermarket lid.. I bought mine for like $95.

    Oh , sorry just noticed you said suspension parts lol.. neither of those are. But you still should definetly look into the subframe connectors.. it's a chassis upgrade but it's important to have to maintain the integrity of your chassis

    get a set of springs and shocks/struts as well as and adjustable panhard bar, lca relocation brackets, and some good lca's.

    Can be done on a budget and will help with traction and handling quite a bit... you can go crazy on suspension upgrades but if you are limited i would say the above will work pretty good.

    best place to start as far as traction is some good tires.

    Then see how it feels and go from there.

    Eibach Pro-Kit Springs
    BMR lower trailing Arms
    BMR Adjustable Panhard Rod
    Your Choice of Subframe Connectors
