I was wondering what torque box reinforcers people are using, and why do we have to reinforce them. Is it hard to do if you can weld????? I am trying to build me first all-drag stang. I have southside bottoms and UPR dbl adj uppers. Do you have to remove the control arms???
There are a few companys out there that produce torque box reinforcements. By far the best made and with the greastest value are the ones made by Mental Addiction Motorsports. They have both uppers and lower sets. THe uppers are CNC machined and the lowers are precision TIG welded for added strength. Call Beau at 480.203.7038 to ask about them. I have installed them in my car with no problems. They fit great and are best used by welding them in after bolting them in. As well they come with grade 8 hardware(which is a little bit of an overkill as far as i'm concerned, but very effective. HEre are some pics from his site:
Mental Addiction Motorsports just announced a closeout on thier TBRs. The price will be $39+shipping for lowers, $59+shipping for uppers and $95/shipped for both sets. THis is an unheard of price. They have less than a dozen sets left.

I bought Wolfe Race Carfts lower plates and then welded all the seams on the uppers and lowers
My site has picts of all of this
I have about $25 for the plates and 4-5 hours of welding to complete the whole job.
