    Are u talking about traction in the turns, or general? Or drag race traction? just curious, for the sake of the thread...

    I think the shocks suck.... but that's not the issue he asked about. He wants straight line traction. The top 3 things for that are LCA's, LCA brackets, and a Torque Arm (all of which we carry--numerous types in fact).

    its the fact that he has lowering springs..and is complaining about traction issues..he threw his suspension balance(might not be the right word) off. the lca relo brackets and adj lca will fix the issue.

    Shocks will help if he's having issues like wheelhop or some such thing. I'm not saying shocks wouldn't help, and god knows I think that's the biggest mess with the car. I'm simply saying that given what I know, what he said I'm just telling y'all what the 3 biggest traction things are (not that he'd need all, and it doesn't mean he doesn't need shocks).
