    Sadly now demodded :(

    Go for the type that bolt to as well as is welded to the rear trailing arm location. Not all types do this as some are just welded to the pinch weld area in the rear. I have custom made SFC's that bolt/weld there as well as in the front where the front frame ends.

    Several of the site sponsors offer lots of sub frame connectors to choose from. Boxed weld-ins are definitely what you are seeking.

    Here are some options from Thunder Racing:

    And here is a link to the rest of the site sponsors where you can find more options if you don't like the ones from Thunder:

    Just my 2 cents I'd go with a set of 3 point SFC, instead of two point. The little extra weight is worth the extra cross bracing to me. SLP, Kenny Brown, and UMI are the three companies making weld in 3 point SFC’s that I know of.

    I recommend UMI connectors. I carry them, and they make a variety of different SFC's you can choose from. You can look at them here:

    All of UMI's attach to the rear LCA mounting location, and the fit every model is top notch. Bolt-in's are easy for anyone to install and can be welded in later if you see fit to do it. Weld-in's save some money as you don't have hardware. 3-points are stronger than 2-points simple because they are bigger and disperse any load to more area.
