Front Suspension Support Brace Noob question

As a part of some other items, I recived a MN12 Front Suspension Support Brace and Lower Engine Cradle made by a guy named Johnny Langton of Warren, TX. Any idea of what they will do for me if I decide to use these? What are they worth on the market? I haven't seen any listed for sale here.

I will search, but I also recieved springs code COS and JIM, any idea what MN12 these were on? Is there a table somewhere with the spring codes and load ratings? They are completely rust free and almost look new.

I did the search again and this came up.. http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.p...+Support+Brace

I swear I typed in the dude's name and it came back empty. Looks like a nice upgrade. I am a little afraid of an overly harsh ride. Any recent experiences? Its nice to see Johnny is still around, this was bought in 2003 from what I can tell.

I thought the braces definitely made a difference in the handling of the car, not harsh at all.

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

The braces are good pieces, I have the full set and what a difference from stock.

Availability is an issue at times and never installed pieces show up on here from time to time and go quickly if the price is fair.

Yeah, these haven't seen the light of day in a very long time. They have never been installed. It am leaning toward putting them on at this point.
