Best rear drag arms & coilovers?

I'm looking to buy the rest of my rear suspension components. I daily drive my car but I want the adjustability to hit the drag strip on the weekends. Who has the best USA built parts out there.* I already have the adm rear billet subframe bushings and upper arm mounts.

Check out the Pfadt rear arm package and coil overs. They offer drag race specific coil overs or street coil overs.

What's the difference between their normal coilovers and their drag specific ones?

Optimized valving and spring rates for the task. The drag coil overs are set up reduce wheel hop and maximize weight transfer from front to rear. The standard adjustable coil overs are set up for the dynamics of street and track use.

If you want some seriously eye opening images, mount it to one side underneath looking back at the nearest rear cradle bushing and see how much movement there is. Or on the diff looking back towards the wheel. TONS of wiggling!
