    Subframe Connector ?

    I got a good deal on some SLP Bolt On Subframes that are brand new and never been used, I have heard a few people tell me I should weld them in even though they are supposed to bolt right up is there really that much of a difference or should I just bolt them up and leave them be?

    For most applications bolt in will be OK; however, a weld is a much stronger bond than a threaded fastener.

    i think the weld in ones come with extra places for welding along the subframe, so if u have the bolt in ones.. i am not sure. bolting should be ok, but welds dont come loose...unless they break..

    Do you need a drive on lift to install bolt on SFC's?

    No. Check out the instructions: http://www.exoticperformanceplus.com...php?service=13

    This is for weld in SFCs, but the bolt in's don't want the chassis to be loaded either.

    Welding is always the strongest, but once they are in it is hard to unweld. Where the bolt-ins you can unbolt them to work under the car etc. Performance difference between the two: on the street my 2cents you will not be able to tell the difference. A race only app. I still don’t think you well see a difference in performance.

    I personally have the bolt-ins and have had no problems after 3 years of use.
