I would say bushings would be your best bet. Maximum Motorsports has a great kit. Also, even if you're only going to be going down the track a few times a year, get a set of MT E.T. Streets (bias ply) or something similar. Drag radials work, but to get the most out of your setup, I would go with a good soft tire and launch hard. The tires will absorb the shock well, drag radials....not so much.

+1 on Bruces kit! Skip the halfshafts .. the stockers are fine, just get all the rubber outta there!

Bruces kit + stock half shafts. Don't bother with any of the DSS shafts. They are junk. Also run on a tire with some sidewall to absorb most of the initial shock.

Being that you already have a brace I have new bushings from Steeda if you are interested? I am going with Bruce's kit so I wont need these.

I agree, but honestly even Bruces kit really isn't necessary. It does help tighten up the rear, but a good set of slicks at the track and the car is good to roll.

It isn't necessary in most cases but I've pulled out bushings from some cars that looked like they had been chewed up by a rat they were so bad. While others didn't look that bad. But I agree that if the stock bushings are still in good shape, a diff brace and a pair of slicks will make it leave the line like a champ.
