    I went with the 2 pt tubular myself.. just didn't see a reason to get the 3 pts since I never plan on running a tunnel mount torque arm. I also got bolt in so I could just bolt them in myself. I'll eventually get them welded in.

    2 pt. boxed are stronger than 2 pt. tubular - that is a fact. The disadvantage of the boxed is that they hang a little bit lower. The 3pt are stronger than both, but are not really necessary, and are added wieght IMO. I have the umi boxed 2pt weld-ins and love them. Just my .02

    From talking to UMI they pretty much said the different between tubular/boxed really isn't that big of an issue. The nice thing about boxed is another place to jack at.

    I love my boxed SFC. I never have to search for a jacking point, just reach under, make sure its on the SFC and pump away.

    I plan on getting adjustable everything. I hate buying parts and needing to upgrade later on. Once I lower the car I probably will want adjustable everything.
