Laser cut brackets are included that attach the rear of the subframe to the connector for an easy, strong, and simple welded joint. Unlike others, the DSE subframe connectors are barely visible from underneath the car. The rear of the connector is tapered to attach to the rear frame rails and also has a laser cut slot that conforms to the rear seat floor pan. The connectors are bent and TIG welded in a fixture for accuracy and repeatability. Our subframe connectors do not interfere with seat attachment hardware or the installation and removal of the rear leaf spring pocket. Additionally, the molded factory carpet will still fit over the subframe connectors. Our weld-in connectors are supplied with templates, pictures, and detailed instructions for installation.

DSE Body Mounts & Stainless Bolt Kit
Detroit Speed's solid body mounts provide a simple approach to eliminating the flex that occurs between the body and subframe connection. This will improve vehicle handling response by increasing chassis stiffness. These mounts should be used when installing subframe connectors for maximum torsional rigidity.
Detroit Speed's uniquely designed body mounts are CNC machined from billet aluminum. The mounts are then hardcoated, not bright anodized. The hardcoating process resists corrosion that can occur between steel and aluminum surfaces with regular bright anodizing. CNC machined stainless steel bevel washers are included. 17-4 stainless steel flanged body bolts are also available as an option.
Our mounts are available in either 1/2 height or stock height.
