i used a kp 4-link on mine. bought a coilover kit from chassisworks, which includes, upper mount with tabs, adjustable lower mounts. i have a bridge in mine. welded the cross bar on that. my coilovers are alden eagles with 300lbs springs. has a dampner adjustment and can adjust the bottom of the coilovers also. this is the setup i have found to work the best :head: i can gt some pics if you want also
here's chassisworks link .

then part # for the shocks i used is AS655 with a 300lbs spring. i used a 250lbs before and it was a little soft. the 300 lets me carry anything in the back if i want also. i can always ajust the rate also.
4-link $500.00
Alden Eagle coilovers- $400.00
brackets for mounting- about $150.00
i did all the other work myself.
i think the shacks are 14" eye to eye with a 10" spring
since this set up, i have not failed to hook up once and it has one hell of a launch :head:
