Sub-Frame Connectors

Just ordered jacking rails, sub-frame connectors and the
extreme matrix rails from Kenny Brown. Does anyone out
there have any words of wisdom or lessons learned from
the install of these products on their vehicles. Please let
me know, good or bad.

Thanks!

are you installing them yourself?

The KB active matrix system takes a good while to install from what I hear. It is a decent quality product though and many people use them with no complaints

Looking forward to feeling the difference because I'm a little
concerned about the 50 pounds added to the weight of my car.

The jacking rails have to be sweet. Jacking a lowered cobra
is not fun and the creeking sounds it makes going up can't be
good.

It can take awhile do fo all 3. I done the J.R. & M.B on my 96 and K.Brown already did the subs. You will have to trim a little bit of the matrix brace off. They make the tubes about 1/2 - 1' longer then they have to be. At least it was for my 96.
I put them up and welded my jacking rails up first and then put the matrix brace up and trimed off alittle bit by little bit so I didn't over do it. Then once it all fits weld it up.

The jacking rails are awsome. You can jack it up from anywhere on the rails. If you need any pics let me know and I can get you some. Here is my email millerk@bright.net

Good Luck !

!!

As far as the weight goes i could not tell a difference with all the Kenny Brown suspension mods. If anything it feels quicker. Im sure it might make it alittle slower in the 1/4 but on the track it is made up there, but I have not had a chance to get it to a open track yet. I hope to try it one day.

Where in MI you at? I am about 2.5 hrs from the Ohio-MI line.
