And you know they kicked themselves in the ass for not taking the extra time to be careful.

It should be pulled. Im sure he did if he is a chassis builder. My interior and rearend were pulled to get a good weld all around without anything in the way and then hit with paint.

I'll agree that most SVE suspension products are junk, but the full lengths are a quality piece.

Does anyone know if MM have tq box supports.

The shop wants to put through the floor subframe connectors in but I don't want to cut the car up.

Anybody have any experience with the SVE from LMR

blownstang Simply welding the torque box seams is enough for any car making less than 800rwhp. The interior needs to get pulled anyway so if youre more comfortable with bolting in and welding the battle boxes then it is a good time to do them. Just a little more money for parts and labor.

This is a good idea. You'll need them at some point and if you're doing them with the SFC's, it saves you from having to take the interior apart twice for welding.

I did mine at different times and wish I had thought ahead.

Let me rephrase I'm putting in 8pt roll bar so not much cutting just welding.
I think I have narrowed it down to steeda Team z and MM . Team Z seems to be the strongest

MT0911 Just make sure you get full length. I run MM flsfc's on my Cobra and my Fox. Very happy with them.

blownstang MM or Steeda. SVE suspension products are junk. Stifflers doesnt really add anything for a drag car.

I'm sure the MM ones are just as good though. I was looking at both and it came down to getting a better price on the Steeda ones. I have tons of parts from both companies and they are by far 2 of the best out there.

Silver GT Yep, MM all the way, just make sure they're installed correctly, the car should be level with the suspension loaded.
