    Installed UMI 3 Point SFC`s

    I installed UMI`s 3 Piont bolt on SF Connectors today , and all I can say is WOW ! Bolting these on should be at the top of your list or atleast near it !
    Not only does my car handle better but it drives straiter , corners far better , rides a hell of allot better & respond`s amazing .

    And my car is still on the factory shocks & spring`s !

    I can tell you that I use UMI over BMR, and I always will. UMI and I have a close relationship and we work well together. And I've never heard Ryan have a cross word for anyone.

    Bottom line, making the parts in question is not rocket science. It's a matter of who you trust, who you like, and who you think will be the best to work with. For me, in my business that's UMI--and that's why I not only use, but sell UMI stuff.

    Take your pick. I won't lie and say BMR is junk. The attitude of some of the folks that work there isn't what I like to deal with. Some of them are great folks from the dealing I've had. But for me, I'm a UMI guy. And you can find most everything they make on my website. Anything not there, is simply an oversight. I'd be happy to get you anything you might want that they make.

    As of this writing, we do indeed have springs in stock.

    If you have any questions about the springs, the UMI parts or anything else, don't hesitate to let me know.

    Bought them from the WS6 Store for $299.00 for the bolt on`s , shipping was $110 + our taxes but I`m up in Canada .
    The install went fairly quick , only removing the factory rear suspension bolts was a little hard but that`s to be expected .
    I just think they look better & fit tighter .
