Do the Strange shocks help that much? I found a deal on Konis, a panhard bar, and springs. Along with tying up the LS1 brake upgrade I'm thinking about getting this package from BMR:

http://bmrsuspension.com/?page=products&productid=339

I'm going to hold out on SFC's for a bit as well but I'm hoping to replace other crucial components of my 20 year old suspension while I'm there.

TLDR: is that package from BMR worth it?

Shocks depend on what you do with the car. You don't want drag shocks if you track the car 2% of it's life.

First thing I try to get people to do is subframe connectors. Tightens the whole car up. Then LCA and panhard bar. I recommend double adjustable for both so the wheels can be adjusted if needed.

What are your opinions on a destroyed build? I.e 6.0 block with 4.8 crank

Well, that would be for a high spinning setup. I've seen them done to get a 8k rpm limit on motors. Just torque suffers a lot.

Trap door is a great way to go. Makes it a lot easier, expecially if you have problems in the future. Just make sure you seal the hole back up so fumes don't kill the inside of the car.
