The freakin cold has caused the metal to shrink and now the front part of the SFC's have gotton loose and are bangn like no tomorrow. Only when i accelarate. freakin wisconsin weather. Once i get my mig gun running im zapin those dang things in place. Other than that i love my SFC.

    Did you use any thread locker on the bolts? I did when I installed mine and have not had a problem.

    Im trying to figure out what metal does SLP use for it to be heavy. I havent seen or lifted any to feel the weight of them but my KB's didnt feel heavy at all. They are boxed style and is galvenized steel i think.

    I have UMI 3pt bolt in SFC and a UMI torque arm relocation that attaches at the 3rd point, that is why I went with the 3point, to tie more of the suspension together. I went bolt in for the simplicity of install, 3 months latter I sold my 97 TA, stripped all the aftermarket suspension and installed it on my 2000 SS, so I'm all for the bolt in... 3 point may get in the way if you wanted "true dual" but for everything else they're great, my hard top SS handled tight, but with the SFC it's rigid, sub frames were one of the last mods I did to the TA, wish it would have been the first.

    UMI makes a good product, I also have a double adjustable PH rod from them, thier tech support was good, I may just order LCA's to replace my older LG's latter on in life.

    I have the UMI 3 pt and I really love them. They came in red and I have all my suspension in red so it matches They were a breeze to install. They really hug the bottom tight and I thought there was going to be some rubbing but there is just enough clearance to do the job and not rub on anything. 1 point I do have, why does the front mount only cover 2 bolt holes, if the bracket was a little longer it could accommodate all 3 holes and IMO be a little more stiffer. I have t tops so I really felt the difference in stiffness, It was 1 of the best add ons I have done yet.

    I just installed UMI bolt-in 3 points. Got the best deal on Ebay from a supplier (he went cheaper than the UMI direct seller).

    I had a little bit of trouble installing them (I didn't follow the directions). Got them completely finished the other night. They look great and fit well. Now I just have to wait 2 more months to pull the car out of the garage and see how they feel...

    Bump for a question - anyone have pics / how-to for the 'vert install? I have a fuel line sitting where the SFC goes on the driver's side.

    (Oh, and the installuniversity.com site has pics of a hardtop/t-top car)

    I like UMI parts. I am ordering some 2 point bolt ons from them and plan to weld them in later when I'lm done with all the paintwork.
