ok so i was at my local junkyard a few days ago and there was a 99-04 mustang convertible and i knew something had to be better structurally underneathe it since it doesnt have a roof, so i got under it and was able to unbolt some subframe connectors and i got them at the house now, my question is should there be any problem of them going on my coupe, other than my coupe im sure they dont just bolt on, but if its pretty much the same as all the aftermarket ones than i saved about a 100$

A good set of welded in full length subframe connectors are one of the best mods for these cars , those flimsy short bolt-in factory pieces went straight into the garbage .
A good set will add around 25 lbs to your car but well worth it , makes it a totally different ride .
Is there really a reason to put subframe connectors on a coupe?
My 98' coupe is WAY more rigid than my 95' vert was.

My coupe doesn't even have a strut tower brace or k-member brace like my vert did. A lot of people claim the strut-tower brace doesn't do anything, but I'm sure it takes a LOT of stress off of the struts/towers in high speed turns.
Probably not as necessary on a dd mild street driven coupe but if the car is being lowered the stiffer suspension works so much better when the chassis is made more rigid with the addition of flsfc's . The Kenny Brown system adds jacking rails and a side grid to stiffen things up further if your building a corner carver .
