    They will do fine for both drag and handling, if you want more handling get a panhard bar setup for the rear.

    I do. The rear end felt real loose around corners at high speed turns and i had a good bit of squat during hard launches. I got the Hotchkis Lowers and all that is like 10 times better than stock. Awesome difference.

    When you see it oozing out of the bushings... stop.
