Stock axles vs 600RWHP

Im doing a build on my car should have about 480 to 495RWHP N/A and 600RWHP on Nitrous. My budget is 1000 more dollars. Can i get by with SPOHN rear lower control arm,rear toe link and trailing arm to help with wheel hop. Or just buy the 1000hp axles and finish suspension next year. I am going to be running 18x10.5 92 dragstar rim with 305-45-18 drag radial.

I have BMR toe rods, trailing arms and bushings, cradle bushings and upper control arm bushings. No axle hop and I'm 600.

Replacing the 1/2 shafts is a very smart idea first off, wheel hop wont stop your car from driving however a broken shaft will, just my thoughts

If I had the extra cash I would do all axles and suspension mods. But I have over spent my budget this year so I'm just trying to get some racing in untill cash flows again. So you recomend axles first

Bo White you still on factory axles or you have already upgraded. I know I'm playing with fire but I can't come out of shop and let it sit because I ain't complete with my suspension setup.

Stick or auto? I broke a half shaft with 660rwhp. A nitrous car should be a little softer of the line so you may have some more luck than I did.
