Please help with rear end drag setup

I need help with setting up the rear suspension on a '14 SS

I've been checking out the JDP stage 2 anti wheel hop kit but the more research I do, I'm finding out that this is not going to work for my final goals. I would like to be able to add a drag package when I go to the straight track.

What suspension parts can I get that that will fit a drag pack. Basically I would like the same components that come in the JDP kit without having to grind anything to make the wheel and tire package fit.

Thanks.

I think you would be fine with the Stg 2 kit from JDP, but to run a 17" wheel, you'd have to buy lower control arms, too. Not 100% sure, but I believe either

or

would get clearance for a 17" wheel.

Yeah, the stage 2 drag kit comes with the solid subframe bushings like OP posted about.

Yeah, I'm really sold on those solid sub frame mounts. The "jello" feeling in this car is surprising considering they call it a track car.

I'm trying to eliminate the need to upgrade, would this stage 2 to kit be sufficient for a while? I know that's a pretty broad question. Let's just say I'm gonna be putting 1000+ to the ground next week. Also I'm not trying to turn this into a completely dedicated drag car just yet, or maybe ever. The plans maybe to make this a fun semi competitive Mexico car and then just get a dedicated strip car.

I've never in my life raced road or autocrossed but I'm trying to avoid completely ruining the corning characteristics. I feel like a complete novice asking these questions, but this is the first time owning a car with this type of rear end and abilities.
