    What are the best ones? Time has come to add them. There are so many on the market.

    Personally, I like the MM full length ones. I am partial as you can see.

    Have to agree with that. Not as expensive as HANS and just as stiff.

    And to the original poster, :wf:

    GLOBAL WEST or MM or Hans Racecraft
    I have a coupe and I love my Very stout Globals...
    The vert version is vert specific... they rock!!!

    Not cheap though...

    :coolman: Very happy with my MM full lengths....had them for a year. Car feels much sturdier over the bumps and round the bends, and really cuts down the cowl shake.Unless you race, I can't see why you would want to pay more.

    I just got the MMFL's and the workmanship is great. These will do the job. The Hans connectors look more rigid and may be stiffer but they weigh more too. That's something to consider.

    I'm sure you know you've got stock subframes, they're week, but they're there nonetheless. Good luck finding the right ones I hear MM makes a nice product.

    I have the hans on my vert. They look great and made a big diff. Really nice having the jacking rails to help with the floor jack. I never noticed before but I jacked up one side of the car and put a jackstand under the rear torque box and when I let the jack down,as the front tire comes down it lifts the back wheel on the other side off the ground about as high as the one with the jack stand under it. I figured that's pretty stiff.Maybe all of them make that big of difference.

    Subscribing - I am really trying to decide between MM and Hans...considerable price difference and I can't tell if there is any performance difference. Not trying to be cheap, but why spend any extra if it makes no difference.

    More thoughts?

    Thanks, it seems like most use the MMFL. Think i will give them a try. Someone told me they tend to have a little more ground clearance as well.

    If you really want the best of the best... Griggs Racing Full Frame Kit. Here is a picture of them installed (not my car).

    I personally have Griggs standard full length subframe connectors and they are excellent.
