Any Ideas for strengthening chassis?

I want to reduce my chassis flex by quite a bit. Im getting some subframe connectors as well as an aftermarket strut tower brace since I have a Cobra intake. Debating a rear strut down brace in the trunk, not sure if I want to compromise trunk space if it doesn't reduce flex by that much.

Any other ideas or input on how to make my car flex less?

Do the rear shock tower brace...it does way more for you then the front does...I love the one I made for my car. Make sure the sub frame connectors say full length. So consider larger sway bars and some progressive lowering springs to keep the car level more in turns.

Sub frame connectors will indeed be full lenth! Any input brand wise? I was going to go with thw steeda ones for $165, but will just go with the Maximum motorsports ones for $135, or SR performance ones for $95 if the performance will be the same. Just want the best performance possible.

Eibach sway bars along with Eibach pro strut kit is on the way soon! Already have A CJ pony parts aggressive lowering spring kit installed for a 1.5'-2' drop!

Past the parts already listed the next level of stifness would come from a roll bar or roll cage welded to the sub frames.

Sweet good to know. That's what I was going for. Gonna go for a roll bar once I get my racing seats in, should be stiff enough to go through some twisties at a good pace!
