    Any 'BETTER' adj Panhard and subframe connectors?

    Is there any 'better' brand that isnt priced out of the sky? Just want an adjustable panhard since I just lowered my Z.

    Also with subframe connectors are there any brands that don't hang as low or have a sleeker profile or are they all the same?

    I have all UMI stuff on my car. The reason i bought the UMI two point SFC's is because i felt they where the most "invisible" SFC's. IMO they tuck up better then any other brand. I also have the UMI on car adjustable panhard bar... no complaints so far.

    I have a mutt suspension...

    - UMI Subframes (for their tuckness)
    - BMR Adjustable LCAs (I don't know the reason for buying them over another)
    - Edelbrock Adjustable Panhard Rod (cheapest of all)
    - Spohn Body Mounted Adjustable Torque Arm w/ DriveShaft Loop (for the included DS Loop, I don't think any other manufacturer has it)
    - BMR V6 Shock Tower Brace (because they are the only ones that make a V6 version and I wanted the bar to sweep back towards the cowl, rather than straight accross)
    - Spohn Solid Motor Mounts (only manufacturer that I know off)

    I have all UMI, I bought direct from them. I would either contact them directly or get them from a sponsor. I am partial to Mark at KYSPEED he always takes care of me

    I vote UMI... it's what I use, and in all the years I've carried their stuff I can only think of one issue--ever (and it was taken care of). The stuff works, it fits (particularly the 3-pt SFC's), and it's great value with beautiful build and powdercoat quality.

    That's why you see UMI stuff all over my site because I believe in their stuff (and they are 40 miles up the road and we have a great relationship).

    Forgot to add I did end up going with a UMI 2pt brace for the front and their adj panhard bar with the poly bushing to keep it smooth and a little dampened. Soon I'll be getting sub frame connectors and lower control arms from them too! Held off on the sfc because with the hardtop the car is already 1 bilion times more solid than my brothers old ss was with the t roofs. I'm not sure if I really need em.

    Their responses to emails and support were what sealed the deal for me. I emailed many shoppes but didnt get any responses as fast as them and they provided me with much information to help me decide on the parts. Big thumbs up to UMI !

    Im thinking of getting a UMI 2 point boxed subframe connectors, weld on are there any better deals then 149.00 is that that pretty much the best for those subframe connectors. I think that with strano sway bars and ill really love the way the car is gonna handle.
