If you're looking for 1/4 performance, a good set of lower control arms and a new upper control arm are a good place to start.

Sportspix will post here shortly and it will be about 20 times longer than necessary and most of it will be self serving dribble. Just ignore him

On a serious note, what stlwagon said. The 05 and up cars have a very good chassis compared to the other generations when traction is concerned. Just get a good set of lower control arms and get a good adjustable upper control arm. With some good tires that sucker will launch like a rocket.

If you are looking for the ultimate opinion pm don w. He has his car pretty dialed in, makes about the same power you do and I think he probably has more passes down the track than the rest of the board combined!

I was told that you dont need the brackets with adjustable lower arms, but i might be wrong.

If you're lowered the anti-squat brackets will help resolve any traction issues. Even if you're not lowered, they will help with the rear end geometry. So if traction is a concern, go ahead and get them.

You need lower control arm relocation brackets when you lower your car. For the LCAs to work their best they have to be at a downward angle from front to back. When you lower you car you lower this angle and lessen their effectiveness. The relocation brackets will restore that downward angle.
