Yes - good idea for any Mustang.

Also makes it easier for mounting the drive shaft loop that comes with having slicks

I don't know how much power you'll be making, but I do know that it would be too late to install the frame connectors AFTER you buckle the quarterpanels !!

Like NIKE says, "Just Do It!"

just my 2 cents,,, Ryan

How fast is it?

Or how fast do you want it to be? If you want to run sub 12's you'll need a rollbar anyway and it will stiffen it up better than sub-frames.

We are restoring a 68 coupe and the competition engineering sub frame connectors were the easiest thing to put on yet. You can get them at jegs for about $100. They just bolted right in and you only have to drill two holes
