Global West Advantage: Subframe Connectors
- 1967-73 Mustang

The more performance improvements you do to the vehicle, the more demands are put on the uni-body. Sub frame connectors provide resistance to chassis flex, therefore increasing the integrity and rigidity of the chassis. Installing them will also help reduce rattles and squeaks from the car flexing over rough roads.
They are a must for any performance application and work well in a street, road race, or drag race application. Sub frame connectors are powder-coated black and come with complete instructions. Additional gussets and hardware are also supplied with certain models.Tech Tip:
One important factor about subframe connectors is that on full uni-body cars, such as Mustangs, the subframe connectors must be welded and not bolted. Bolt on subframes do not have enough material surrounding the attachment area capable of resisting constant flex without working loose. The boxed area simply starts to collapse allowing the subframe to work loose.
Round tube subframes (per given weight) resist torsional twist better than square tube versions. They provide the least amount of weight while remaining very effective. Additionally, round tubes allow the subframe to tuck up as high as possible for maximum ground clearance.In the Press:
