Post sub frame connectors for 3rd gen
Just curious if there are any SFC's for 3rd gen cars that tuck up nicely and are not visible from the side on a car without ground effects?

I think the UMI ones do that as they are really close to the frame

Not true. The UMI ones are extremely visible even with GFX. If you have a 3rd gen without GFX it'll be even worse.

The only ones that wont be visible will be the round tube style ones that contour with the shape of the floor pans that go on the inside frame rails and not the kind that go outward along the rocker panels.

Something like the Alston SFC's, they wont be noticeable. But then again those 'inside' style SFC's like the Alston's dont do anywhere near as good of a job as the perimeter/rocker style ones that have the LCA's reinforcement bracket and can be pinch welded along the rocker panel.

Just my 2 cents.

That's good to know, thanks for the info.

So i would assume that the rectangle tubular ones would probably be the best bet (for perimeter ones) as they may not be as high as they are wide?

I guess i will need to try to search for pics of some installed to get an idea.
