Summit Introduces 1979-2004 Mustang Bolt-On Subframe Connectors

New from Summit Racing – the Bolt-On Subframe Connectors for 1979-2004 Mustangs. These connectors reduce unibody twist for better handling and traction. See more details below.

Official Release:

Fox-Body and SN-95 Mustangs are not the most solid vehicles ever made. That’s why a pair of subframe connectors are a must, even for mildly modified cars. Our bolt-on, full length connectors reduce unibody twist by forcing the front and rear suspension loads to directly act upon each other, effectively cancelling each other out before they begin to twist the body shell. The result is a much stiffer chassis, better handling and traction, and a marked reduction in squeaks and rattles.

Unlike some other bolt-on connectors, ours run the entire length of the car from the front subframe to the rear torque boxes. That means the connectors improve chassis stiffness even better than other types, and don’t hang down nearly as far.

How do we know all this? We tested our subframe connectors on a 1988 Mustang GT convertible, and actually did science-y stuff like measuring and comparing torsional and longitudinal twist of the car’s old shorty connectors and our full-length ones.

Features:

  • Reduces unibody twist
  • Forces the front and rear suspension loads to directly act upon each other
  • Stiffer chassis for better handling and traction
