Adjustable upper arms, V8 wagon springs, braced lower arms, adjustable rear sway bar, adjustable panhard bar, competition engineering rear shocks.

Fronts not so much benefit, I personally wouldn't bother with 90/10's, just standard stuff fine for running low 9's high 8's

You want to set it up for the tyres you're using too. Radials can tolerate a stiffer shock, they tend to plant and stick.. where as a slick the softer spring helps them load up more and weight distribution seems to be more important.

I ran a stiff shock, lowered stiff spring, and a 235 ET and ran 10.4s with only a 1.8 60ft. That combo wouldn't work at all with a slick.
