WOW, what a difference!

With the help of a great friend (who has a lift in his home garage) I got my 6-Point Subframe Brace, 22mm Rear Anti-Roll Bar, and Steering Rack Brace / Clamp Kit on today.

WOW, what a difference!

congrats man! i love the feeling of new toys. now to see the feeling of each one, you should take one off and see how it feels then switch. i did that with a stock, 22, and 25mm rear arb, and it was kinda neat seeing the differences in each. did the same with 6pt on and off and now i think i'm an idiot for not getting that thing sooner. just wish the old economy wasn't kicking my ass right now so i can get one of those handy dandy steering rack clamp/brace things. ...

Tweek found me the 22mm Rear Anti-Roll Bar, and Steering Rack Brace / Clamp Kit at a junk yard for a GREAT deal!

They came off of a member's old Talladega 900. He sold it and the person who bought it totaled it....

I don't think I'd even like driving the car without those items. Very necessary.

That's great! it is always good to hear that these mods work well as I want to desperatly improve the suspension and overall feel of my car. What improvements have you noticed from the Subframe brace?

I hope to post something similar like this soon when I get the same parts.

It's hard to say which of the 3 fixed the issues. (Since they were all installed at the same time).

The car feels more stable, a lot less Torque Steer, etc.

I installed the subframe brace and didn't notice much improvement, I had already all other stuff done listed in this thread plus koni suspension.

You can search on here for more of my thoughts on it.
