New to drag racing

I have an 07 LBZ extended cab short bed with tunes from Duramax Tuner, lift pump, intake and downpipe back 5" exhaust. I started drag racing at the track doing only lightly boosted 2wd launches. Ordered kryptonite tie rods from dmaxstore and browsing the site it got me thinking about traction bars... What would you guys recommend for mods for the strip?

Best (with wheel spin) was a 14.803 at 96..

Thanks in advance guys/gals

I purchased kryptonite tie rods, long horn fab traction bars... Who makes a good pitman arm/idler brace as well as a centerlink brace that BOLTS in? I saw dirty hooker has the centerlink brace but haven't searched much for the other 2... I'm saving for a tranny, already been in touch with Evan at Limitless Diesel.

Very good choice in trans builder for the pitman arm, Kryptonite suport, frame gusset, and arm. Too stop the center link from twisting either DHD brace or the Cognito PISK.
Your on the right track.

Dirty hooker diesel sells leaf spring clamps that will work well enough for now. They clamp at the front of the overload spring around the whole pack. I did that for awhile then got their traction bar kit when I got more into pulling.

Do you need to brace the pitman/idler as well as centerlink or is it one or the other. I'm not 100% familiar with the geometry. Wondering if I get the DHD centerlink brace if I would be good for now.

Yes the brace will be enough. I personally lost steering radius with the cognito pitman and idler braces. So I took them off.

A little different method but they both do the same thing so one or the other. I am lifted so my only choice is the PISK.
