Need help figuring out what type of suspension this is!

Hey what's up guys, when I bought my notchback it had this suspension and the dude told me it was an expensive suspension, does anyone have any idea what type it is? And what it is worth? Any help would be appreciated thanks

Is it subframe connecters,torque arm,etc??I can't tell if its running down the center of the car or more towards the outside where subframe connecters run.

It appears to be subframe connecters then.If you don't know what they're used for,they basically tie the front & rear unibody together so it will be similar in strength to a full frame.It keeps the body from twisting and flexing and it prevents the floorpan from cracking due to age or hard driving conditions such as drag racing,road racing,improves handling,etc.Some brands also include a T type addition that attaches to the bolts on the front seats to help strengthen that area.The link below shows an example of this type of subframe connecter.If this looks similar to what's installed under your car,you've definitely got subframe connecters. They range from $75+ and the weld on type are stronger.

There is also a brace called a Jacking Rail that gets installed closer to the outside of the car,compared to the subframe connecters.It gets used for jacking up the car which prevents damage to the unibody.It also helps strengthen the car.

I also tried to look up that brand and nothing came up except for advanced racing suspension which was a strut/shock company.

Subframe connectors are $400 for parts plus labor, never heard of that brand before. So no, not expensive. That pic of the rear looks like the control arms are stock... I hope you didn't pay for "premium" suspension.
