I'm excited to see UMI building this product for our cars, I have several of their products on mine, their quality is excellent, and their customer service has been excellent as well.
I bought the SC&C front frame brace a few years back, and it was a big improvement in handling and feel, it also reduces NVH, and you can feel the difference in harsh roads, potholes, speed bumps, etc.
In turns, the frame brace may also provide some support to the sway bar
mounting points on the frame.
Here's the side-by-side of stock F-41 bars vs SC&C brace.
By itself the F41 bars look big, the SC&C brace is larger and thicker-wall tubing as well.
Speedtech was offering a front frame brace, currently there is no news of when they could be available.http://www.speedtechperformance.com/inde...prod/prd210.htm
I am glad to see UMI put time and development into the G-body.
Maybe they would consider additional frame braces such as rear frame brace, and a full web for the transmission to rear control arms.
