I'm looking to upgrade and hearing about UPR wishbone or maybe an anti roll bar setup. My 60fts seem to be suffering a little. Right now the car is bbk lower control arms with drag springs. I know i am in need of an upgrade

Can't go wrong with that combo. They have stock style springs that work good as well.

Strange or Vari-Shock double adjustable on all corners would be my vote if it's in the budget.

Ok thanks. I think at this point I might as well suck it up and do it right

That thing seems to run good based on your Fast 25 list info.

Get that short time to improve and you will be set.

What's it weigh and what's the current suspension details?

Not to thread jack, but how does that anti roll bar help? Do they help stabilize at the higher speeds down the track or do they help the 60's? What is the difference of a stock style sway bar?

Have you ever seen a car squat to the right rear axle on a launch?

A anti roll bar will keep that from happening.
