Question anyone use these?

anybody use these stage 3+ control arms + AA coilovers? curious about there performance and fit and if they will be good for my street/strip build or if I should keep looking. Also considering the TRZ setup but they say those are "drag only," probably because of the built in + caster, but im not sure yet on front suspension. I want something that will drive at least fairly decent on the street (I don't need a floating on a cloud ride, just not super rough either) and then be able to perform on the strip. With the TRZ's I could do regular style double adjustable QA1's or Vikings, but the "drag only" worries me.
Thanks guys, any input would be greatly appreciated, or if you know a good street strip setup im all ears!

i found the 67-69 camaro QA1 setup for the pro coilover system that's made for high performance street strip/ pro touring, sounds like its right up my alley. much more spendy than the perf. online ones though

On the last Nova I built I used these:

They were cheaper twenty years ago but are otherwise the same.

I used QA-1 Double adjustable coil overs with 550 inch pound springs with a BBC over the nose. Made for a very firm ride so you might want to back off. I also had a hollow Hotckiss 1-1/4 inch sway bar on the front to keep the wheels planted on a corner.

Twenty years ago vendors still used Moog ball joints. Today even though the price went up they are made in India and will fall apart the first bump you hit. I recommend going with a taller steering knuckle. Though very pricy it does improve handling and facilitate lowering the car as well as installing disc brakes.

These spindles are exactly what ive been looking for, thanks! I'll be getting those, theyre worth the cost imo.
That's exactly the QA1 setup i was just looking at, they seem like the best option so far for what im going for but ill need to wait for a exact spring rate. itll be 509 or 540 blueprint motor, but spring rates are something new to me (along with many other things im diving into with this build) and i know getting the correct ones is very important so ill have to do some research on that.
thanks for the links! those spindles will be getting ordered for sure

Spring rate depends upon driving style and weight of vehicle. Good thing is spring changes are as easy as swapping a shock. I had a box of springs I bought used at my local roundy-round track for peanuts.
