    super pissed,sfc's poor fit

    So I have a brand new set of J&M subframe connectors(site sponser when I bought them)I finally went to get them installed today and the fit was terrible in the rear so much so they couldn't be installed without some fabrication.dammit!! So who makes sfc that fit,I mean really fit? Bad enought thay want $80 bucks to install,now who knows how much it will cost to make them fit,they fit great on the front subframe but at the rear subframe the was at least a 4mm gap.and yeah I had the correct side.

    My 2pt. UMI's fit like a glove. (but I'm not sure you can say their name since i'm not sure if they're a sponsor)

    It shouldn't cost that much to install either. Look else where.

    yes, UMI is a sponsor and paid to have the right to advertise here instead of trying to sneak it in like lesser companies.


    I have UMI's and they fit fine. Did you contact J&M to ask them about it? I might've even taken pictures. They would most likely make it right with you.

    UMI is a great fit and they back there product with pride.

    They are also made of high quality material and made in the USA.

    Thanks,

    i'll take 50 bucks plus shipping. they are black in color.j&m wants $122.50 plus $15 to powdercoat them black. you can see them on hotpart.com. i will stress they do not fit well on the rear subframe area and will require some fabrication to make them work!

    how hard was it hit and how were the sfc's off? Vertically or horizontally? I'm sure it's a part issue but I wouldn't just write off a hit to the rear...doesn't take much at all to tweak a unibody a little bit and 4mm isn't very much.

    it was hit by a chevy 1500 in front of the right rear tire just hard enough to dent the panel.guy was backing up at a ultra low speed and didn't see a bright yellow car.very mionr and absolutely did not effect the unibody.sfc's have a gap at the rear on both sides.i really should have taken some pics when it was on the lift.might try to get some pics tomorrow at the house with the car on the ground

    Sadly now demodded :(

    How many passe are on the car?

    Buddy bought a 2000 SS new but didn't do SFC's til about 50K miles. By that time it was a H/C/I + spray 11 second car. It needed a 1/4" thick spacer on the right rear to fit. These were the type that didn't go all the way back the the LCA front mounting point.

    These cars are pretty much a Twist-O-flex design under pressure.

    1 pass at a dragstrip on radial tires,no slicks or drag radials have ever been on this car and it is rarely driven hard.it is my wife's car since new and she keeps her seat back just far enough so she can't press the accelerator to full throttle,kinda crazy but she slug a rod in her v6 firebird way back when and she is scared to drive the ceta hard too often and t-tops do not leak at any high pressure car wash i have been to.
