    Those are what I have on my car and I'm a t-top car as well. They are great! Besides they stiffing up the chassis they double as a great jacking point. I can lift the whole side of the car up by placing the jack in the center.

    The are about the same. It depends on the material they are made out of for strength.

    Convertible SFCs are specific for verts. For a ttop car, you want "hard top" ones.

    Go with whichever one you can find cheaper.

    I have a set of UMI 3-pint bolt-ons. So far I like them, but I haven't driven on them yet since snow is still on the ground...

    I've heard it's only a problem if you want to run true duals.

    I have SLP pipes, and no problem whatsoever.
