Ahahaha I thought you would say something like that. My thoughts where the flow would be to much for the factory heads. I currently have LS1 intake, maybe I should goto LS6 with ported TB.

What would be a good basic start to suspension parts to help drop my 60' and help eliminate wheel hop? I should have a little extra money this winter to spend. Also in the future when my rear end breaks what new suspension pieces will i have to buy to match/adjust to the new 9in rear end. I don't want to have to buy the same thing twice. Thanks

Adjustable Lower Control Arms

Pick a brand it doesnt matter really. I had all UMI under my car before I gave it to my dad and got Racecraft stuff.

Double adjustable lower control arms and pan hard bar to start. Those can be transferred. I like BMR products

Get a set of 16" Camaro wheels and use a set of decent tires in the rear at the track. That will stop the wheel hop.

Torn between lowering springs, originally wanted BMRs but I'm torn between those and Eibach's. I know the rears tend to sag but will going lower restrict my 60'?

I got the eibach pro kit for my car 2 years ago and they seem to be holding good for me.

Eibachs are known to sag within time. BMR have seem to stay stable so far.
