Subframe connectors, Front suspension supports

Cross posting for more views...
I'll be making up another batch of the following items in a couple of weeks (over the Thanksgiving holiday):

Front suspension support/Lower engine cradle bracing-$225
Subframe connector kit-$250




The FSSB/LECB fits '89-'97 Tbird/Cougar and '93-'98 Mark VIII.
The subframe connector kit will fit '92-'97 Tbird/Cougar and '93-'96 Mark VIII.
The subframe connectors will fit the Marks with the aluminum fuel tank, but MUST be modified by YOU or YOUR INSTALLER to clear the tank.

I'm planning on making up between 10-20 sets of each of these-depends on demand. If you want one or both-you need to send me a PM with your email address so you can get on the list, and I will require a NON-REFUNDABLE 50% deposit for the order, with the remaining balance and actual UPS shipping costs due before shipment. These will be made sometime between the 22nd and the 30th of this month, and I will be shipping the first week of December.
I am NOT making any RTLB's, Front STB's, or Rear STB's at this time.
All kits will include hardware and detailed instructions. These kits will require some minor welding for attaching the mounting tabs to the subframes, and are designed to be easily removed for servicing the car without blocking access.
Questions?

Prices are as listed. You end up saving a few bucks on shipping if you order both and I package them together.

I've had these on my car for years and they are money well spent. They definitely improve handling and an easy DIY mod.

1995 Thunderbird LX - 2000 GT PI Swap by W&S Motorsports - Sold on Tccoa.

Anyone have photos of sub frames connectors installed?


RTLB, RSTB, FSTB, LECB and FSSB, MAC intake, black interior and new shoes... Soon to come: SVO blower,, AIS, SS kooks headers, SS 2.5" dual exhaust w/ x-pipes and borlas, koni shocks, 1.6" vogland drop, poly (almost)everything, 1 3/8 F&R swaybars, rebuilt suspension... Parts collection nearing completion, contemplating the "Do" phase... More like "Pay someone else to do" phase... I blame the slow results on deployments and pre-deployment training... Kill
*currently planning some chassis work*

Johnny, I've got these installed, and WOW!

This car is now the best handling car I've ever owned.

With the braces, the car body doesn't flex, has almost no body roll, and is extremely predictable. (I haz modz; konis and sport springs)

My alignment guy even noticed the difference. and said he didn't have to leave as much "slop", lol. (he hates unibodys, lol)

I really appreciate you making these!

Please let me know when you make another set, as I have two more cars.

The rest of you guys don't know what you're missing...

If you want them-better speak up. It's gonna be a little while before we have any more built and ready to ship. Work schedules are not nice this time of year,and don't leave much spare time for this stuff.

I got the LECB/FSSB and the difference is amazing, no more float. Best suspension investment I ever made and should have done it first. I'll be getting the sub-frame connectors as soon as I can afford it.

What does connecting the subframe do? Is that like how he old mustangs used to not have the under suspension connected and people tied them together when they built up so much horsepower and torque? My dad said he cracked his windshield with his Cleveland! Lol

Sorry, I know this is a very old and outdated thread, but I am looking for anyone that had the installation instructions for these. Please PM me if you have them.

Thanks,
