I didn't want to hijack the other thread, so I started this one.

If it is indeed a structual part of the chassis, I would like to see it extend to either the firewall or radiator support, or both.
Unless I see some evidence that the factory piece is stressed, I wouldn't replace it.
With that said, at what point does the car need sub frame connectors? Drag racing I think would be a given, but what about spirited street driving? By that I mean, you don't slow down for the turns or you take the turns as hard as you can, when possible and within the means. I don't mean driving over your head or doing stupid sh*t.
