Better lower and upper control arms, both adjustable so you can set the pinion angle to improve traction. That's around 4 degrees of angle if you or a shop can set it. You can get the arms with either 3 piece urethane bushings (street car), spherical bearings (street/strip car) or delrin bushings (strictly drag car). You can mix and match these bushings depending on your needs and usage of the car. Then some adjustable shocks dialed to full firm so the tires will plant harder and have no hop. Finally some appropriate springs would keep the car level and not twist. All that twisting on launch could be used accelerating forward, not turning it into a pretzel.

Fox body cars pretty much have a 4 link set up from the factory, it's just not adjustable. Follow the earlier advice about new upper and lowers, gears, and you'll notice a huge difference in the way your car launches because it will eliminate most of the "flex" that your rearend is doing under pressure.
ummm what are you running for a 60' now?
What set up is it with? I'm curious....
89 ' LX 5.0L coupe ex-crash victim.5 sp., 100% stock except for Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers. 2-1/2" tailpipes, airbag in right rear, K&N filter, 4.10's,subframe conn. A plain LX . 14.06 in the quarter .@95.75 mph / 1.79 60' No front sway bar. M/T slicks 3500 rpm launch, 11 psi on 89 octane, timing in the 14-16 degree range Done on a 70 degree day. Best 60' to date 1.77, best e.t. to date 14.01 by my brother.
Man with a TT setup, what are you running power wise? Im guessing at your power level but with good uppers and lowers, subframe connectors and a fat set of MT DR's or straight slicks you should be hitting a good 1.7 60' and im guessing a low 7 1/8 and a low 11 1/4. mines a stockish 97 vert and with stock control arms and 373 gear O/R x CAI and TB spacer im gettin 2.1 60' and a 9.6 in the 1/8th. with a good rear setup a sticky track and some good tires you'll be bangin. Our track here sux. they skimp on vht and the launchpad needs tore up it has f'in craters in it. good luck!
97 Mustang GT convertible. AEM brute force CAI, Pypes O/R X pipe, american muscle TB spacer and 3.73 gears.
what do you guyys think are good shocks some 90/10s because i wanna get more transfer of weight off the start so i can hook up better i spin alot off the line i have almost bald mickeys so im gunna replace those.
Get the Strange Engineering 10 ways and dial it in yourself. Start at setting 10 and work your way down to see what works the best for you. Did you get some better drag tires yet. When you do get it to hook your gonna start to break stuff so be prepared. Here's a short list of weak points rear axles, get some 31 spline ones(Moser, Strange, Yukon), differential (Auburn, Eaton, Detroit Locker, FRPP), then you may also want to reinforce your torque boxes and get some good upper and lower control arms prefereably adjustable. if you spend some cash on it I don't see why you can't run 1.6 60' on drag radials and still be streetable. What psi are you running in the back tires. Usually between 15-20 psi works the best.
