Subframe connectors
#1
I am looking at building a set and want to know what folks are using and what the like about them. The style I like are the Global West and Maier Racing round tube that wrap around the bend in the rear frame rails.

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

i got my set at mustangunlimited and they were the weld in place ones. they make quite an awesome improvement. the car no longer twist off of a hard take off. nice handling as well, and the big pig 460 up front needs it!

I am running a set of bolt in frame connectors in my Mach. The installation was easy and eliminate a lot of the body twist on hard accelaration at the strip. I like the bolt on because I didn't have to cut into the floor pans to instal the weld in ones.

I found some of the adjustable rods @ Speedway motors in the circle track catalog that look to be a really good deal. Then all we'll need to fab is the brackets. I'll get cranking. I actually like the look of the speedway rods better than mine.

I'm thinking the connectors will give the car a more solid feel.

Assuming this is for a convertible, Global West was the only manufacturer I found who made 71-73 conv. specific subframe connectors. For what i paid from Mustangs Unlimited I don't think you could build them any cheaper or any better for that matter.

73 conv. 460, D0VE large valve heads, Performer RPM manifold, Voodoo 227/233 cam, Holley 950 HP carb, C6 trans, 3.25 trak-loc.
