Subframe Connectors
#1
Wrench 
Hello,

I had bought some bolt on subframe connectors from John's Mustangs. Two things, they sent the one for the 65-70 subframe connectors. Darn! Number two! My question is, has anybody bought and used this set? I noticed on the rear spring eye bolt connector, there is a metal triangle for support that is going to have to be either modified or removed.

Yes, I know weld in would be better, but the bolt in has really worked well for me!

Thanks!

Bolt it then weld it where you can. That's what most do.

I have the competition engerning bolt in sub frame connectord and love them. I bolted them in then welded them. The nice thing about the bolt ins iss you don't have to cut the floor pan.

Initially I ordered subframe connectors along with the super suspension kit from Laurel Mountian. Everything has worked out fine except the subframe connectors, we couldn't even figure out how they were intended to work ! They were the bolt on boxed in style.

I returned them and bought tubular weld on ones from Global West, there was a world of difference in the quality and craftmanship. They welded right on and look great.

Just my two cents worth.

I just recently removed my bolt on sub frame connectors after 16 years of good service. I always intended to weld them in which is always preferable, but I'm glad I didn't for what I'm planning. I'm not using leaf springs any longer so I am going to tie the chassis together differently. They are Competition Engineering IIRC. The receipt from ASAP has the Part # C/E3140.

Hello ,

I have received my new Sub frame connectors from Mustangs Unlimited and they are nice. The only issue I have is the back end are not sealed. I might have to look into welding a plate on the back. I found the custom make it yourself on line. Nam they are nice. But to track down the materials and tools would have been a bit of a problem. I plan to temporarily install one place this weekend. I will respond back with results.

Not to be rude but I was thinking the same thing about mine.

I don't know how much of a price difference there is. But I do love my GW ones. Click on 'my garage' go to modifications and there is a pic of them.
