Default UPR k member and coil over kit

Well I just picked up a UPR k member and coil over kit this weekend and was wondering what some of the guys run around here with their k members? I will be doing about 50% street and 50% track (drag)with my lil 349 stroker. So far I got 14" with 150 lb springs and will probably be going with the strange 10 way struts. Now I am in the process of deciding what rear set up to go with and wanted to see what some of you run and how it works for you.

Strange 10 ways are the way to go. I have steeda lowering springs and Lakewood 70/30 shocks in the front With Lakewood 50/50 and Steeda lowering in the rear. Adjustables are better.

1.54 N/A the few time i have gone off the bottle.....

to be perfectly honest i am not really sure how much the bag helps on my car i have a lot adjustability in the suspension.....

with that being said on a basic stock upgraded suspension the bag will make a big difference......

Thomas Newton explains first outing with new suspension.
If i ever can get this suspension to keep the front wheel on the ground the 60' should be better......

The wheels hanging looks good but its killing the 60'......

The next upgrades on the the suspension will definitely involved baseline or team z.....

Then hang on to your skivvies the 500 shot will make an appearance.....:kooky:

videos or it never happened!!

seriously,have any clips of your car at the track?

my suspension if fairly well built,and has adjustability everywhere,shocks ,struts,coilovers,weight jackers,upper control arms,etc...just gotta tweak it till it works..thought about just getting an ARB,but im going to wait and see how it goes first..i have alot less power to control than you do..probably less weight as well...

I agree work with what you have before adding anything else.....

start with a relatively natural setting and adjust one thing at a time......

making muliple adjustments/changes will have you ripping your hair out.....


There are vids somewhere between here and miami......

I know its hard to belive

I don't own a video camera.........

the wife said i could not have one because........

another story another time........

You left the window open for so many bad things to come in. But i wont go there this week.

Reg knows he owes so video footage of his beast(CAR) or no one will believe what he "says" it runs. :nogrinner

As for Smurf, I have the following:
FRONT:QA1 Tubular K member and A-Arms with coilovers and strange 10 ways, UPR C/C Plates, no sway bar
REAR: UPR double adj. uppers, UPR single adj. lowers, Strange 10 ways.

Havent had the car at the track yet, not ready. But hopefully it hooks perty good.

So Stroked95 you got stock springs in the back? Man I was going to order my shocks and struts today since I got paid and now a friend of mine asked if I want his lakewood stuff for free like his 90/10 and 50/50.
