subframe connectors. should be one of the first things you do. -I know I'm being hypocritical, but, they should go into any Mustang you plan to keep.

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

yeah, there's a difference. Weld-in ones are better, and there are all kinds of brands. The cost will vary according to weight and stiffness.

Griggs probably has the best, but they require losing your power seat, and 8 hours of floorpan reconfiguration.

Kenny Brown (IMHO) has the best of the non-invasive sets, and are scalable, you can upgrade them after you get the super subs. They're zinc plated, and lightweight.

Steeda's are well like by a lot of folks, and maximum motorsports are used by lots of folks.

Hans Racecraft hasa new set, and they look really sturdy, and you can use side exhaust with them, but they look heavy.

this is a pretty basic primer on building cars, but it's good.

Well it used to be good, with the redesign, a bunch of stuff is gone!
