    well they wont give you more traction, the will help stiff up the chassis and make your car more solid. this cuts down on twisting motions caused by accelerating and turning. this can be seen to help traction, but not in the sense of traction that springs, shocks, and control arms give you. It will stiffen the car up to help the springs shock and control arms work better. but just adding sub frame connectors isnt gonna make your wheels magically stick to the pavement. They are definately a great add on for these cars though and highly reccomended. One of the first things i did to my car. def. a must if your planning on adding hp to you engine.

    What kind of tires are you running and what size? Without good tires that bite it doesn't matter what kind of suspension mods you have. Subframe connectors are a good start. Then you can get some lca's and a torque arm. Thats just my opinion. Good luck!
