Alright i think i kinda know what to do with the front suspension but what should i do with the rear.. This is such a difficult decision because all the power goes to the back. Does the back end also need suspension that is just as good as the front.. The Front is TCP coilovers.. also should i disk the back and is there a good disk conversion for the back without breaking the bank?

IMHO, the back suspension isn't nearly as important as the front suspension, because if something were to break, it's not nearly as difficult to maintain crontrol of the vehicle.

That being said, though, doing the rear suspension will save you money on tires (especially oversized tires that like to rub with weak springs) and make driving the car much more fun.

As far as disks go, that's more a matter a choice of personal taste, IMHO. Drum brakes, propperly maintained are plenty adequate, and you don't have to worry about the brake dust ruining your shiny wheels. ;)
