    Hi,

    I'm trying to figure out what to get next.

    Currently I have v2 HO supercharger running 10psi, ford dual exhaust and 3.73 gears on stock 7.5 axle.

    I'm trying to decide between:

    1. Wheels/tires combo. Get a nice set of high performance tires and some chromed out wheels.

    2. Lowering springs, shocks and struts.

    3. Upgrade to 8.8 rear end w/3.73 and tlok.


    I know 8.8 is most reasonable but I'm thinking of going with 1 or 2 then doing 8.8 if or when my 7.5 axle breaks.


    Suggestions?

    If you do 1, you'll end up doing 3 sooner or later because you'll probably bust up your rear with the better grip. Do 2 for now and have fun until you decide on wheels. Get rid of the wheel gap and then get nice wheels. the other way around, it can look awkward.

    rear w/ gears then worry about all the extras later. will save a ton of time and wont have to worry about snapping or grinding anything up in the rear with sticky tires. 3,1, then 2. shocks hopefully aren't a big issue for you but if your putting rear in you could do the rear shocks while your at it.
