SN95 Cobra 96-98 sub frame connector experience / recommendations

I've been collecting parts for about 2.5 months in order to lower my car and beef up the suspension. My goal is get rid of 4x4 look, better handling, without too stiff a ride. So far I bought rear Bilstein HD shocks 5K miles at a swap meet. Clean used MM caster camber plates, Low mileage H&R sport springs, finally found low mile Bilstein HD Struts. I have a lead on Steeda rear LCA non adjustable. I need to buy Bilstein strut boots, F&R isolators, and finally the sub frame connectors. Definitely weld in. Leaning toward Maximum Motorsports full length. It appears most if not all sub frame connectors need the transmission mts notched on a 96-98 cobra. Is this a big deal? Any other suggestions. Are AM's SR full length for $95 good? Car is not a DD and won't be regularly dragged. I'm looking for more a sports car feel. Thanks, Spiney-Dave

I'm in the same position. The differences between MM and others are probably enough paying the difference. I am interested in following up on the subframe connectors that re-inforce the seat brackets also, like the ones from BBK. LINK:BBK : 1994-2004 Mustang GT Cobra Subframe Connector brackets

Hi Robb. I got a lot more answers on some of the other forums. I just ordered from a company I never heard of before, Golden West Suspension. They make their full length SFC out of round tubing instead of square. It it stronger and they claim hangs down less than any other mfg's SFC. I bought it on recommendation of a few others. I got them from Summit Racing for $129.95 + $8 shipping. Best price I could find. Jeggs has them too. For the SN95 Coupe the part number is 909C.

The main reason I went with them over Maximum Motorsport's was they require No Modification to the Mustang. You don't have to notch any cross members. I'll let you know how it works out. Everything should be here by the end of the week.

Steedas, only ones out there that come with extra bracing for the ends. Even the MMs dont have it.
