    Steeda offers two braces for the front subframe. The Gtrack is a 4 point triangulated design , the 2 point is pretty much just a straight bar. Does the gtrack provide a noticable improvement over the 2 point brace on a car that is never tracked? I do use the car for spirited drives on twisting roads, but nothing more demanding than that. I am concerned with the Gtrack having clearance issues. It hangs lower than the 2 point. My car will be lowered on Steeda progressive springs with a 1.25" front drop. I noticed someone complained theirs scrapped, but dont know how low they were. Does anyone have experience with both? Would the 2 point serve my needs just as well, wout causing ground clearance problems? I appreciate any help/insight you may be able to provide.

    Neither, if you're going to do anything go for the BMR CB006.

    Statements useless without a logical reason why, and "its better" isn't a justification. What MAKES IT better.

    I'm open to the suggestion. Why would you recommend it over the two braces I mentioned?

    Doesn't reduce ground clearance by any significance, and adds stiffness directly to the lateral arm mounting points.

    I have the steeda 2 point, mainly because i couldnt afford the gtrack when i bought all the other suspension stuff lol. I like the 2 point, front end is planted. I have also have a STB, cobb lowering springs, MM c/c plates, and bumpsteer on the front. I will say I have scrapped the 2 point on stuff before, well the bolts scrapped at one point.

    Invest in the Ford performance pack firewall k-brace and strut tower brace first, if you don’t have these already.

    I like and use the the Steeda 2-point brace; it gives a noticeable increase in steering feel for a low price and easy install.

    You are correct the 2 point will serve your needs. The two point does provide more ground clearance.

    Do you know where I could find a picture of this mounted on the car? I would like to see how this supports things compared to the Steeda one. Steeda has a photo of it mounted. But, BMR does not.
