sub frame connectors.....

i'm going to add a pair to my car, weld in. are any actually better or just higher priced because of the company name? had good or bad fitment with one brand over another?

I have a set of spin-techs that I'll probably be selling soon. Let me know if you are interested.

Street or Track, or Mike Maier Inc. Both have more than one welding point at each end. You can also add the an X brace with MMIís subframe connectors.

Couldn't get the spintech link to work but google imaged it and those are some good looking sfc's! Wish they had been around when we did mine!

Iíve used both the Tinman and the spintech ones. I had side exit exhaust and the spintech cleared their exhaust perfectly.

Used Global West's, fit perfectly, quite sturdy. Got them from OpenTracker (spread the wealth).
Not worth much, but on that much criticized recent Fast-N-Loud episode building the Bullitt they used GWs.

I have a set of both Global West...and a set of USCT contoured connectors( 65-66 Mustang CNC Cut Floor Contoured Frame Connectors ). I have not yet installed either...but my plan is to install the global west connectors first...then cut up the USCT contoured connectors and weld them to the sides of the GW connectors and the full length of the floor...essentially taking advantage of the twist resistance of the DOM tubing as well as the extra strength of being tied into the unibody the entire way...not a SFC idea for the faint of heart since it costs twice as much and requires a lot of extra work.

Another vote for tinman. Not sure how deep you're going with the car but I'm adding convertible inner rockers as well and plan on running some tubing from them to my sub Fran connectors.


Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
