There's a company called ATQ that just released a subframe Collar Kit. This got me thinking do we even need one? I don't ever experience any subframe clunk on the Stinger. Anyone else given this any thoughts?

This is one mod I think everybody should do to their car. I installed a subframe bushing kit in my 2015 Kia Optima SX, it makes a differences on how the car drives and handles. The collars a line your subframes, front an rear & make your car straight an true, so if you like to corner your car there wont be any flex between the chassis & the subframe. Good purchase

I was going to pick up a set of these from Shark Racing but I was told by another vendor to hold off for about 3 weeks or so because of a New Subframe Bushing kit with Bolts that's coming out. When I pick it up I will let you all know how the install goes. I should be one of the first people to get one of these kits. I will take pictures

No it wont change comfort like vibration etc.

this is a quote: Aluminum subframe bushings will eliminate slop and movement from the factory subframe, while maintaining suspension geometry for improved handling, tire wear and steering response.

I installed the Shark racing aluminum Bushings and Ultra racing chassis bracing both at the same time. No change in ride comfort. The car is VERY SOLID and STABLE in turns especially 90 degree turns.
