    Red face Sub Frames and Panhard Bar

    I'm looking to purchase some SFC's (sub frame connecters) for my Convertible SS , and a panhard bar for it.

    Is the adjustible panhard bar worth it for stock tire sizes and no further suspension or engine mods other than those in the SIG.

    Also, to whom ever has these products do they really create a noticable diff. I felt a diff when i installed a slp Strut brace. Do they make the car any quicker because of less body roll?

    Lastly do the SFC's reduce ground clearance at all?

    thanks in advance, Jeff

    An adjustable Panhard only lets you recenter the rear axle if you put lowering springs on the car. By itself it won't improve your handling or make your car any faster, it's needed to correct your suspension geometry after you make a ride height mod. Since you have a convertible you'll find mostly weld-in SFCs which affect ground clearance minimally: if you're not putting in lowering springs it won't affect you at all. I put in a Hotchkis STB and noticed that my car's handling was tighter and more responsive & I have a coupe. Again, with a convertible there's more chassis/body flex so anything that serves to reduce the flex is all good.

    yea, i'm not planning to lower it, i found some SLP bolt on SFC's that look good, idk if there are any others out there for convertibles that are cheaper

    Bolt ins are more expensive that weld ins. Even if you go with bolt ins I would reccomend having them welded in also.
