    SLP Sub Frame Connector Help!

    I just recently acquired a set of SLP Sub Frame Connectors (Bolt In) for the TA however, they did not come with any hardware. Does anybody know what the size of the bolts used, thread type, and the overall dimensions of the Nut Plates? To save myself the $50 (SLP's purchase Price for the kit) I would like to buy the 6 Bolts and Washers from the local Auto Parts Store and Have a friend machine up the Nut Plates.

    Thanks in advance.

    Take it to an exhaust shop and let them weld the connectors in. Using bolt in subframe connectors, the bolt holes will stretch out after a couple of months of driving around corners and render your new investment useless.

    I don't like welding these in, but everyone has an opinion. You can get some 1/2 bolts to use, just make sure they are grade 5 or 8

    They will work just fine bolted in. I made my own hardware. I used 1/4 inch thick plate, and welded nuts to it for the front, and in the rear you can use large washers.
