Sub-Frame Connectors

Looking to get a set of weld in sub-frame connectors for the '94 Camaro.

Have been researching all the different companies and, while they generally run the same price across the board, I wanted to get some personal insight from those that have them installed as to company preference, design, ease of installation, etc...

I don't really think I'd need a set of three pointers, as the car will be more of a DD with about 350 hp and 400 ftlb...

They install the same way. There's really nothing to it.
I'd go tubular personally. They tend to tuck in better and aren't as visible.

2 point from Midwest chassis is all you need. Definitely one of the best. It's a true SFC instead of the ones that connect to the lca

When I went on that site, I noticed the same disclaimer on almost every page they had of parts. It said that all their parts should only be used in off road usage and not to be used on the highway. I'm not quite understanding that. Any thoughts on that.

It is a federal offense and illegal to make any "modification" of a motor vehicle beyond what came from the factory.

Fortunately, most states don't inforce the laws too much...BUT IF they did, these guys cover their ass by telling you you can do what ever you want but they only designed and intentioned it to be in an offroad vehicle...in other words, something not liscensed for the road...

Do you think these would fit a 3rd gen? I know that 3rd and 4th gens are almost identical on the undercarriage, barring some minor differences, but those differences could add up...

call them up and ask, or even email them. They have great customer service both over the phone and through email.

Probably not, but they might make a set for the 3rd gen.
