not much when you install the SYSTEM.

Installed alone, the full length SF connectors provide more rigidity, but you generally won't be able to run side pipes, fitment on convertibles is difficult, and some can interfere with aftermarket suspension systems. Additionally, they weigh more.

So if you're planning to go farther with chassis work, you'll have to commit to the rest of the system.

FOr example, the beauty of Kenny Brown's system is that you can save weight in the subframe connectors, because when you install the cage, it's just as rigid at less weight than a full length subframes AND a roll cage.

So it's going to have to depend on how far you want to go.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
