The first question is better probably for the suspension/braking section

Second question, may get a hit here. Personally I have not viewed any post on that item in here.

Third one good for the Body/Paint or Appearence section

MWC has a good rep. I would say the sfc connectors fit just fine. I personally have the front bumper support but for the Camaro and I love it. Well made great fit.

Give them a call......

Our Strange master cylinder kit will remove the booster. I can't say as it will brake "better"... That is of one's own judgement, but if you are having a hard power brake pedal from low engine vacuum then it would help for sure. Any manual master cylinder setup will have more pedal effort than power assist brakes... that's why they are called "power brakes".

The CM frame connectors are not as popular as our rectangular ones, but they are just as effective. Keep in mind the MWC connectors are a true subframe connector and not bolted to the side of the LCA mount, which is nowhere near the actual rear subframe.

Bumper supports should be no problem. The MWC design is very lightweight at only 4 pounds.

No part numbers needed... just give us a call and we will get you taken care of.

I got their manual set-up with Aerospace brakes on all 4 and the pedal feels great! Haven't drove it yet so I can't say from personial experience. Basically everything they build is great. Eric built me a Trans crossmember for my lt1 w/th350 out of aluminum and was a "one off build" and it fit like a glove. IMO he knows his f-body's like a champ. Can't go wrong with anything he makes.

just my personal experience i put their subframe connectors on my car and now everythime i hit a dip or bump on the road/freeway i get a loud clunk noise, it almost sounds like its flexing my chassis.
