  • Subframe Connector interest check

    its been quite a while since we last made these so im looking to see if all the new guys and people who never got one would be interested. this mod will make a dramatic difference in yours stiffness. it will increase handling and help with all the creaking from the old floppy chassis. i just jacked up my csvt to measure it and jacked it from just one point on the sfc and the whole side of the car lifted up together.
    it also gives you lots of room to jack the car up from. you dont have to deal with removing the jacking pads or pushing the floor jack way under the car. the closest point on the SFC sits just inches past the side skirt. these are a simple to install part though they need to be welded on the car on a drive on lift.

    we made them before for $150 shipped and sold them like crazy. that was years ago. id have to check on pricing and shipping costs and of course things are based on quantities of scale. before we sold 50 sets at a time in order to get that pricing. with the waning in popularity of these cars i dont think we'll get that many people on board again but we'll see.

    post up if you'd be interested. id say realistically between $175 to $200 shipped these days.

    if you dont know what these are, theyre steel bars that are made to weld onto the bottom of the car. they tie in the front and rear of the car dramatically increasing the stiffness of the chassis. nothing else does this short of a cage.

    we've sold probably 150 of them to CEGers over the years. so many many people have them and can attest to improvement they make. its not a "maybe" or just a "little" improvement. its pretty big.

    These are awesome. I have them on my 2000 SF SVT, and the chasis stiffness is greatly improved. I'd say the effect is greater than the RSTB as far as handling improvement.

    I'm down for a set...

            I'm assuming that these work even with a lowered car? If so I'm in

                Yes, in fact LUCA swears they save her side skirts several times going over speed bumps as they sit just a tad lower than the skirts.

                    id probably need about 20 people at least to make it happen. that or the cost will be even more. we get much better rates on the steel the more we order

                          is it too much?? not at all. its never enough lol. the SFCs make a huge difference. much more so than strut braces.
