Default SMY's Rigid Collars coming soon!

Honestly, I was skeptical. Most people were skeptical as well. Let me tell you, these little things make a world of a difference. The road I take every day to school has bumps that I know to avoid. I hit most of the bumps that I know wouldn't damage my suspension or wheels and they were so much smoother.

Install should be no more than 45 minutes to an hour. Four subframe bolts up front and four subframe bolts in the rear. I don't have pictures but SMY, where I got the collars from, has all the pictures and I will try to get some to post up. If you have any questions you can message me and I will try to answer all your questions to the best of my knowledge. If I don't know I will try to ask and get the correct answers. These things are amazing. These will be officially for sale when all the fitting issues are sorted out. Thank you for reading!!

im going to assume that you can probably slide these in without full removal of the subframe. just take the bolts out, drop it down, then slide it back in place and tighten the bolts.

the inserts are probably only about 1" height. youll need an alignment afterwards.

cool, thanks! so, i still have yet to install my whiteline rear subframe bushing inserts, and i know i can just lower the rear subframe to get those installed... but is it a good idea to get an alignment even after just installing those?

or is it really a matter of the front subframe becoming repositioned and thus needing an alignment?
