    you definitely feel it tighten up. I honestly didn't think I would feel any difference and that it was all in people's heads. Damn was I wrong. Just had mine installed today and its amazing the difference it made!

    those dimples will even show even after SFCs if you push the car enough.
    I have SFC welded and rolbar and still get them... fix them once in awhile.

    That's where I got those!! I may have to put SFCs on my list now before upgrading my sway bars. Already got STB and PHB/R.

    Update!!

    Installed sway bar and panhard bar today! Really didn't notice a significant difference, but regardless, it's nice to know quality durable parts are back there!

    Still waiting to have someone weld in the SFC's! Does the carpet need to be pealed back while welding? Anyone done that before?

    I've got boxed SFC's with sportlines, but you've already heard that's a problem in NH. Still have a few inches of GC though. I can take a picture to give you an idea of GC if you want. They made the car so much stiffer it's crazy. They are SLP SFC's

    $67 for a panhard bar sounds cheap enough to not be an adjustable one. If you are lowering the car, send it back and get an adjustable. If it is an adjustable, then I spent $40 to much!

    I have the exact same pan hard bar. It's not adjustable. Of course, I don't plan ever on lowering my car.

    I got the UMI boxed 3-point SFCs from WS6store and I had to cut one of the bars from the driver side because of my LT's. I sprayed the cuts with enamel to prevent rusting.

    No need to move the carpet when welding. We used a breaker bar to get the SFC's lined up and bolted in place before we welded.

    Same here, no plans to lower thus the non-adjustable worked out great.
