So before my camber bolts from BMR, the closest I could get to zero camber was -.5 trying to get a good drag alignment. But I am not lowered. With the bolts, I got down to -.1 which is perfect because on the launch, its pretty much zeroed, and I have a .24 total toe IN, .12 on each side, based on Justice Pete's recommendation. It works pretty well, too

not necessary....but if you ever want to put on some 17inch welds and some drag radial, the wheels will rub unless you swap them out.

You are wrong sir!
I have raced in NHRA stock eliminator and super stock and the rear stabilizer bar is used exclusively in these classes which is the classes that are the closest to the street strip cars run. Very important to the drag race car. Cars that are running 1.3-1.4 60 foot times and running in the 9s run a rear sway bar
