How much will they help? Are they more for handling or drag? I thought about the swarr bar.

They help with chassis stiffening on both drag racing and auto cross. I just got mine installed two weeks ago and haven't noticed a big difference yet but I'm headed to the track tomorrow to test them out.

Yeah you could. Just make sure that when you install the jack stands are placed on the control arms and axle oor a drive on lift. The suspension needs to be supporting the weight of the car or else the frame will twist and be stuck in that position when you weld them in.

Well I didn't notice a major difference in chassis stiffness while I was racing. But I have noticed that instead of kicking the *** end out the tires will just spin, so maybe that's something the connectors helped with. However I don't go to the drag strip to know if they actually made a difference in my launch (I haven't been to the strip in over a month and a half)

Depends on the type of Subframes, the MM and Steeda ones are good, don't waste the money on the other ones.
