    Which subframe connector have you guys had better luck with? I need to pick one for my 81.

    Global West 902 = $242.00
    Alston 102412 = $167.00

    I went with global west. I personally like the look with round tubing over square tubing, I have noticed a huge change in the feel of the car.

    I believe the Alston's and GW's are round tube.

    No complaints with my PTFB SFC, which is very similar to the GW SFC. Fit up nice and easy, tucks up under and out of the way, seemed to really be noticeable when sitting the car on jackstands. Placing the jack stands under the door on the subframe, the car used to have a hinge in it and sagged way down...but not anymore.
