    My next mod will be spring but I'm not sure which one. I will be running my cat most of the time in road coarse track and maybe at drag strip. What do you guys recommend?
    the KW or Eibach or mopar?

    I'm wondering whether the sub-frame connectors would be helpful for drag strip launches. How hard were they to install? Did you have to drill any holes?

    I'm curious about the bolt in sub frame connectors. Have you noticed a difference? Were the installed at the same time as the strut tower braces? Glad to see someone else trying to improve the big Cat for the twisties :)

    I'm not sure on drag strip but I will eventually go someday

    Installation was easy, no drilling other then one hole I had to make it bigger for bolts. I also had to cut the plastic that covers the fuel tank. You can see it on the pictures.

    I notice a huge difference. I took it for a spin and it felt really tight with little body roll.
    I willl put all this mods to the test when I get to track this weekend.

    HLLCAT what kind of wheels/tires are you running? Noticed that in the last pic. X2 on the subframe looks hot does it use factory bolt locations?

    Subscribed HLLCAT, great work. I am going to order the KW system within the week FYI. I like its ability to adjust the height AND loading if you really want to get busy. Let us know how she stacks up at COTA.

    What is the backset of the fronts, just to compare notes.

    KW that's what I a putting on. Will have all the mods you have minus the sub frame connectors. Will be running a 20x11 rear rim for Truimph (awesome guys to work with) with 315/35/20 NT05's out back first. When you going to COTA??

    Heads up on the driver side catch can. Don't waste your time. I a a big believer in the catch can have always had on all my srt's.
    Had mine on for 1 month not a drop of oil collected. Maybe when more mods are done to the engine its worth it but stock not.
    Just my 2 pennies. The front one is a must have.

    Glad to see someone else has finally installed those subframes. I was the first person to do it, also have a thread and pics up from about this time last year. It is a nice difference :)

    how do subframe connectors reduce body roll? seems like that would be shocks, springs, swaybars, and bushing related
