    Several of our sponsors carry SFCs, lots of selection among brands as well. No real downside to installing them, one of the best mods you can do for your fbody.

    About the only downside is the addition of weight to the car and removal of weight from your wallet. Having said that, I am very pleased with how they have firmed up the feel of my car.

    By themselves? No. In combination with my LCA relocation brackets? Possibly.

    I purposely bought them to increase the lever arm that the front mount of my LCAs had on launch. I know the car launches much harder now with that combination.

    X4 for UMI. I have their 3 point bolt-ins on my car and they've firmed up the body integrity enormously. The car doesn't creak, rattle, shake or twist any more even on bad Jersey roads.

    What would be better weld-in or bolt on SFC? Does it matter on type of driving you'll be doing?

    SLP box subframe connectors are pretty bad ass (weld in) get weld in no matter what though, strength of chassis is way better....

    I am sure the bolt ins are good too, I am just saying I would rather have a weld in than a bolt in espically with the abuse I put on my car bolt can break...
