    Totally agree with everyone. I have a bone stock car except for the SFC's and what a night and day difference. The car feels 100 times more stable going around corners and it's a lot smoother going over bumps. They are custom made by a local welder and welded on to the frame. Also my dash rattle has disappeared.

    I have the BMR's myself and the car runs awesome compared to without them. They got rid of my wander issue under WOT.

    i didn't read any posts, and i'm sure im just singin with the choir here, but it doesn't matter what your HP rating is, subframe connectors are crucial, especially for t-top cars. period.

    just for thought-i have weld-ins that are also tacked along the body line where the floor pan meets the rocker panel. keeps 'er real stiff.

    just cuz they didnt eliminate stress marks doesn't mean they didn't help. with whats in my sig i still have streaks from bangin turns. surely they'd be worse if i didn't have what i have.

    na all i have is my phone and there would be no way i could capture them with that, if any camera. to really see them clearly you gotta look down the length of the car. unless they are REAL bad, you won't see them lookin at panel from a distance. they look like long streaks that run almost perpendicular to the ground. hard to explain really.
