Are those aftermarket trailing arm kits to stabilise the rear axle?@Cody Templeton
Absolutely necessary, wheel hop of any kind is not a good thing for the engine, tranny and rear end.
And no, you do not lose ground clearance with the right Traction Bars.
I highly recommend RPG for the traction bars you will not even lose articulation.
Made with billet aluminum, so no rusting like the Rogue Racing one, like I have.
Here's is my setup

Lets say I dont take it any further than the stage 2 whipple package. Is there any difference in driveability/reliability/ power between using the smaller injectors and TB or going with the larger sets?@BigBlackRaptor Any of the injector or throttle body combos are fine from JDM. Most of if depends on whether you plan to do any other mods and how much you want to spend.
Personally, I’d just go with the smaller injectors and the GT500 throttle body if you aren’t going to do any other upgrades. Otherwise, I’d look at upgrading the oil pump and/or pump gears at minimum if you’re going to go with the bigger injectors and the FRPP dual 65 throttle body.
The surging and stalling issues related to throttle bodies had to do with early Whipple tunes for their dual 68 throttle body, but I believe later tunes have resolved those issues. Granted, not something that applies to you if you’re going with JDM since they only use Ford throttle bodies…either the GT500 one that comes with the Whipple kit or the optional dual 65.
They are for wheel hop (aka. axle wrap), you're going to need them when Supercharging, otherwise you could never take off from the light without breaking stuff.Are those aftermarket trailing arm kits to stabilise the rear axle?
