little advice for you. subframes are nothing more then a piece of boxed steel thats bent to form to the underneath of the car. so there isnt much difference in brands. as long as its the same gauge thickness then they are the same. why pay Kennebrown when you can get LMM for 80 bucks for full lenghts along with rear torque box reinforcements. or even another brand for the same price?

this is one time where name brand isnt a factor

yes the short ones only connect to the ends of the subframes. where fullenghts support and are welded the entire lenght of the factory subs frames. they are alot better and allow for more things to be tied into. like if you wished to have a cage tie into them
