Help me spend 200+ at summit racing

got a 200 dollar gift card to summit racing.. cant decide what to get

already have CAI and headers (Not that 200 would cover it lol)

bouncing between plug wires, bmr suspension parts (rear cradle bushings or toe rods or control arms etc)

wouldnt be against any parts needed to help clean up engine clutter
what is needed for the fuel line flip?
AN fittings for the steam tubes?
AN fittings to hook up catch can with out hose clamps

i will go over the 200 within reason for the right stuff. so lets set a cap at 400

lets see what you come up with

Go for anti wheel hop parts. That way you can go with more power and break less parts later.

Yup. Can't believe I waited as long as I did to get the rear suspension squared away.

I agree. Rear suspension is what I would spend it on.

feel like i want to go with all the adjustable parts... so rear control arms are out right now

which is the better benefit cradle bushings or toe rods

Summit carries BMR, so I'd start with this:

Boxed trailing arms with poly bushings. They sell one end of the poly bushing separate, so order that also. It's the knuckle end, a poly bushing here is key to reducing wheel hop. Kinda a pita to replace, but worth it.

Next, BMR toe links with poly bushings. Non adjustable. Only need adjustable if lowered.

That will reduce most of the wheel hop. Next project when wanting more...cradle poly bushings.

I'd leave it not lowered, just my preference, it kills the ride. So after the arms and bushings and still want to really get into the handling.... sway bars and square tire set up. Copy as much of the 1LE stuff/approach as possible.
