Hi all,

I don't post much but do browse the forums see what others are doing to their cars and info on how fix stuff if I cant recall on how to fix them :) .

I have question for the 2nd gen cars as I got a 77 formula about year ago for my 50th bday present to myself and seeing if anyone done the frame ties for their cars what type and brand as I would like to do this to my car as it will be driven on nice days and once in awhile down the strip racing against the sons 89 formula :) . I know over time our cars doors do begin to sag do to uni-body and thinking the frame ties will help against it and know hinge bushing and such too which I got just need install them.

Thanks

Tim

I installed the subframe connectors from Pro-touring F-body. Can be bolted or welded in but require solid or poly bushes for best results. They make a huge difference. The big heavy doors will still wear at the hinges but less bouncing about of the body and chassis.

Mine are bolted in tight but added spacer crush tubes and a few extra packing plates for firmest fit. If i start to jack one corner of the car the far end will come up with it. Glad I didn't weld them in as already had to remove and refit a few times when adjusting exhaust and replacing an incorrect kit of poly body mounts. Made for such simple work.

I have the Pro Touring Fbody connectors as well, along with the solid body bushings and I am very happy with them. I wish there was some sort of "crush tubes" included. I thought about it after the install as it seems I can just keep cranking on the long bolt at the front subframe. I need to get something to put in there and I think it will be alot better. Would
