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$

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.
Ever plan on going around a corner? or accelerating with bravado?


I learned I REALLY needed SFC's when at autocross one event had two skidpads in one course (big O shaped corners where you go around the full circle). The skidpad was so hard on my mustang, chassis flexing, one front wheel skipping around while the other one stayed relatively planted, the ungodly understeer.... SFC's are absolutely worth the money.

Also when my car got 4.10's I lost all ability to launch energetically without roasting the tires and wasting the power, another sign the chassis wasn't doing it's job.

Coupes are stiffer, but they absolutely still need the help.
