I haven't used those specifically, but I have bolt-in sfc in both my Stangs. Welded Is definitely better, but I highly recommend them regardless of what you get. My new edge handles like its on rails (although i have other suspension mods), and i havent had any issues with them. Plus down the road, I can always get them welded if I so please. You might be able to find a better deal on C.L. (that's where I got mine from) or ebay. Id check there first, just in case. Just my .02

Don't get bolt on ones, they won't do much... Get Steeda or MM full length weld in ones.

I think you'll be really happy with the bolt in SR Performance Sub Frame Connectors! Subframe connectors are one of the first modifications that should be done to any uni-body vehicle. This item is designed to stop unwanted chasis flex, while still improving handling! Sub frame connectors are also super easy to install, especially the bolt on kind. They bolt to the engine k-member up front and to the lower control arm bolt and torque box in the rear.

Later down the road if you wanted to improve these even more, you could weld them to the car. The 2004 Mach 1 has bolt on sub frame connectors from the factory and they work great. I ended up welding them to my Mach 1for a little more structural support!

I hope this helps.

That's exactly what I did with the bolt ons on my New Edge. Got them from a guy who took them off his Mach 1, and welded them in place

Otherwise I woulda bought them from AM

ALWAYS weld. Any excuse of why you didn't weld is bull**** for you not wanting to pay to have them properly installed. Oh and the steedas are the best ones and it isn't even close.

People say the SR aren't even full length , and are thin.. Just cheap

You should check out the latemodelresto SVE ones , cheap and very identical to the MM ones ,
If not just get the MM ones

Steedas are like $140 on AM and are the only ones that come with the extra plates for bracing. All the SR stuff is meh.

Hey Guys,

These SR Performance Sub Frame connectors are fabricated in the US from chromoly tubing. They're also powder coated for durability and to prevent any corrosion. These are extremely well made and are just as good, if not better than any other bolt on sub frame connector on the market.

I do agree that a bolt on version may not be as affective as a weld in version but it's definitely more convenient and will still make a big difference. Like I said above, if you'd like to weld them in later there's no problem with that!

I hope this helps.

-Dan

Lol convenient... When talking about the structural ridgidity of a vehicle and a safety item you do it the correct way and the correct way only. Any good shop welding in subframes will have you in and out pretty quick not to mention you aren't putting a bunch of holes in your car. There is only one correct way to do subframes and that is to weld them in.

$140 or so for the Steeda units and then another $200-$300 to have them installed by a good shop. No idea why you'd drop double that on units without the extra bracing plates the steedas have and save very little in the end for a far inferior setup.
