SS #670 Modifications:
Subframe connectors

[Kenny Brown Performance]

I recently installed Kenny Brown Double Diamond subframe connectors. I had them welded at Emmanuel's Mufflers in Alameda. Before installation, I painted them white with some Plasti-Kote white primer and white spray paint (636 and GM-7193). The color doesn't really match the underbody or the body but that's the great thing about white; I'm still happy with the way it looks.

Following installation, I wire-wheeled the welds, masked off the rest of the car and re-sprayed the weld areas. This was time consuming!

The subframe connectors weigh 15 lbs per side.

Installation notes

Summary

The car was noticeably stiffer when road tested. I don't think you can fully understand how much body flex is eliminated by subframe connectors make until you install a set. It's true that installing SFCs is invasive but I would do it again in a minute.
