Has anyone had experience with either or both? Im looking to go pro touring in the not to distant future and was wondering What you think. Also If I were to get the performance leaf springs of either brand, could I still put slide-a link traction bars on it or would that mess up the geometry of the suspension? Thanks a lot

The traction bars could be used but would probably hurt acceleration out of corners.
I would think a really well designed and built rear spring would not need any added traction device.
Chrysler used properly designed leaf setups on their drag cars for many a year with no add on's.
Manny road race Camaros won SCCA road races with no traction bars, of course they didn't have to do standing starts!

Thanks for the info Ill keep that in mind. Despite the functionality of the slide of the slide a links, they look great under cars, a hint at what you have under the hood needs taming! hhe
