    Not a bit... but I had a lot of cluncks.. so I thought it was the shocks.. but replacing them with cheap-os didn't seem to be much better... oh well.

    Since my car came with shocks and springs, my first mod was a short T/A. Then I boxed my 1LE lower control arms.

    On the 98 I had bad wheel hop after I installed the 4:10's, then I put the Bilsteins on and it went away.

    All depends on what you plan to do with it. . If you were gonna upgrade the T/A, I would, at the least, get the relocation kit. But if you drag race alot, I would go with a short T/A.

    If you go with a short T/A, be prepared for a howl from the drivetrain to be transmited to the interior floor board.

    probably the first suspension mod for any car should be sfc's. Get the chassis stiff so the suspension can actually do its job. my car doesnt have the sfc's on yet and the fucker flexes like hell. with a tight frame you get all your power to the ground.

    my friend LOVES his illuminas, as do I. That will be the brand I get. Fully adjustable, have lasted him a pretty long time. I like the way they ride.

    Well.. the car was undrivable (I blew the rear from one launch at the track) .. fun drive home at 40 mph on the freeway clunking the whole way.. sigh... and since I kept upping the power.. I knew another 10 bolt wouldn't do.. so far so good... I'll find out on this year's Bandit Run.. as I'm gonna beat the hell out of the car...

    t/a = torque arm (runs parallel with driveshaft)

    phb=pan hard bar(runs parallel with rear axle)
