Sub Frame Connectors? suspension upgrades

Recently I bought some BMR suspension upgrades. The LCA's, relocation brackets, panhard, and sway bar. One thing I completely forgot about until doing the install, was the subframe connectors... The factory set up appears to be very weak when looking at it.I will have to pay a shop to do that install seeing that they are welded on. I was wondering which ones people are recommending or using? Chances are I will stick with BMR since my other products are as well and I am extremely happy with them! By the way guys, the MGW race spec short shifter has to be my best upgrade yet. It is bad ***!!! Highly recommend, and if you buy from MGW, owner will do install free in Augusta GA

I am looking at BMR subframes right now myself. Most other owners say they are not needed on a 05 up street car. I like yourself, have upgraded several other suspension pieces, and would like to know I am taking full advantage of them. While the newer cars may not benefit like the older cars did, anything that makes the chassis more consistent and predictable is a "need" in my book.

I have decided to go with Steeda frame rail & torque box brace. For the 2014 you can only weld it in(no bolt on), ford made a few changes according to Steeda. Nonetheless, I would weld it anyways. It will most like be a few weeks/months before I can buy and install it. I will keep you posted as to the progress and If I am happy with it or not. Time to work some OT....hope it's worth it

I had the Steeda frame rail/torque brace connectors welded on a few days ago. Honestly, the design of them seems sub-par...You can bolt in a few areas to hold in place while you weld, it connects to your lower control arm bracket, but does not go through the inlet hole...It welds prior to it. I am sure this is more then enough to hold, I just expected a better design or fitment. Anyways, a piece of mind. I know a lot of mustang guys claim we don't need them anyways, but sheet metal connecting without anything else seems weak to me. Anyways, I installed the Steeda one piece drive shaft...Now that is a different story. That was well worth it!!! Car feels lighter and the tires are breaking loose all the way through 2nd gear. It will take me a while to adjust, spinning ain't winning, that's for sure. Anyone wanting pictures, message me...I don't know how to add, sorry.
