good drag setup

Well now that I am working again I am finally finishing my foxbody...and the time has come to purchase suspension and all I need ....so basically I need reccomendations on what I should buy and use so I only have to buy once.

So far all I have is a torque box kit to weld in...I'm looking at axles and gears now ...

But what other things do I need along with a good solid suspension to buy...preferably not breaking the bank


Thanks in advance!

How much horse power do you intend to lay down? Is this a stip only car? Street & strip? Or just street?

Go take a look at the UPR stuff. I'm also in the process of building a Foxbody (a 1993). If you are going to use a stock style suspension then the UPR stuff is hard to beat. For the rear you should get their upper and lower control arms. For drag strip racing a good anti roll bar may also be in order. You won't want to have this connected for street driving but it will sure help with launches at the drag strip. UPR also has a killer front K-member and A-arms along with caster camber plates. I have all of that stuff on my car as well. Here is a link to their website. The people are also great to work with. They will help you out any way they can.

Here is a link to my build thread as well so you can see what I have done:
