Subframe connectors

So, I thought all mustangs came with subframe connectors, but when I looked underneath my car I don't have any. Was I supposed to have them or did some cars just not come with them stock?

Hmm, I thought they all came with them. I have the slots and all the holes drilled for where the stock bolt on one should have been so I'm wondering if someone took it off. I bought new weld on ones to put on anyway.

Our cars have a unibody. The new sub frame connectors have to be welded on.

Make sure if you add any to weld them on while the doors are open

Sorry meant to say doors closed, been sick the last couple of days. Want doors closed because if you have them open and you put the subframe connector on they might not close.

Alright cool, just making sure.
OP to add on top of what's been said make sure the shop (or if you install them yourself) has thethe car resting on it's wheels when they're getting welded in. You want the frame sitting in it's natural position or else you'll weld those in and it will be stuck in the wrong position.
