But it does attach to the subframe... View attachment sb_2005_04_lightweight.pdfI thought I read some class rules that penalized for changing the OE size bolt here. That would be the only reason I would might hesitate on a something I could not reverse safety wise. I still went with the BOE solution.
Regarding the OE “fix”... While I have not heard of a failed link with the brace, I have heard of them still getting lose. Also not a fan of the fix being a simple rod connecting the two bolts and not bracing against anything else.
