: Subframe connectors are used just as they are named; they connect the
: sub-frames of your car. The unibody design of your car is two halves of
: car connected together and supported from folding by the roof of your
: The subframe connectors connect the two frames together allowing the
: frame to be one rigid frame rather than two half frames flexing.
: flex will allow the suspension of your car to work better giving you
: cornering and even in straight acceleration. A side benefit is that
: and squeaks should be reduced.
: You should be able to find subframe connectors at:
: www.spohn.net or
Lots of other places too.
SLP makes a bolt on set of SFC, but I've been disuaded from using the bolt
on variety. Which makes sense I guess, so you're not ripping up your sub
frame. Besides, if you're going to put them on, you're probably not going
to be unbolting them any time soon. I just don't have an arch welder
<sniff> so can't do my own SFC work. Figured bolt on would be the way to
go. But oh well.
