If you had to choose one -

Steeda subframe connectors or Steeda upper and lower control arms ?

I can only afford one with install at the moment, which would you choose ? I would like to make sure im making the most of what little power im making, and putting it to the ground. Looking for more straight line then autocross etc.

2000 GT, 5spd, cai, o/r h, flows, 4.10's, aluminum driveshaft, steeda triax, steeda sport springs, steeda cc plates and a bama tuner.

After going back and looking at some OLD posts in the tech forum, I am leaning more towards the upper/lower control arms.

What say you MW ?

Start with subframes, then move to the control arms.

Glad I waited until today to order. Labor day sale at Steeda so I was able to get the upper & lowers plus steedas full subframe connectors shipped to my door for 390$. Right at my budget.

I already had Steeds sport springs, cc plates, and a strut tower brace. Hoping this ties my car altogether.

Get her all set up then going to the track. Hoping with some practice to hit loooow 13s or high 12s with drag radials.

Yes, start with the chassis first. In fact I would reinforce your torque boxes while I had the Control arms out. It's mainly the seams that will need attention. Aren't you going N2O soon? Tons of torque to contend with, you'll wanna make sure you don't start tearing up (literally) your chassis.
