    Quick question not trying to change topic but i have my subframe connectors welded in to lca's. Im about to order PHB relocation kit and adjustable ph rod, lowering springs and koni's. Will something bind up at all since they are already welded in?

    Are you getting the upper panhard bar that gives you more clearance for exhaust, is that what you mean by the relocation kit?

    You should not have any problems with stuff binding up.

    Correct, true duals won't pass through unless you have the upper panhard and relocation kit, it makes enough room for the true duals to pass through. You are going to be fine.

    I just put the relocation PHB kit on my car this last week along with the adjustable PHB from UMI. I also got the Koni adjustables on and the Strano lowering springs. I have non-adjustable LCA that are also welded to my SFC's.

    Everything worked out great other than my newly found "can't go over speed bumps"! I have the BMR Trak Pak, and the cross member that is welded to the SFC's which the front of the Torque Arm is mounted to hits. FML

    Car has a great stance now though.

    You can weld anything if its metal I have Bolt ins myself and have yet to really see any kind of "bolt hole stretch" that everyone talks about. I guess those are the guys that have exotic motor set ups and no support mods and wonder why their rear ends explode on contact....

    Yes, if you so desire, you can bolt them in, and then, when your good and ready, you can weld them in as well. might be an easier route for those that dont have a welder hander.
    If you bolt them in, crank those things good and tight and then checkem about 3 to 5K later to ensure tighness. Mostly the fronts where the chassis is sandwiched between the SFC and a piece of steel they come with to bolt on to. It isnt coming off anytime soon so Crank that bad boy til it crys.

    I've had the bolt in SFCs for about a year. No bolt hole elongation yet. I check the everything at each oil change. No problems even after the car was in a collision.
    They look like they would be pretty easy to weld in if they ever do elongate. There is a lot of metal there to work with.

    The fact that my car is lowered is not the problem with speed bumps. It's my Torque Arm set-up. With a full length torque arm and a different front mount, I would be fine over speed bumps.
