Correct. It's floppy like a wet noodle. But that doesn't mean it can't handle well.

Put a floorjack under the car and stick a corner in the air. The car bends like a wet noodle.

This is where seam welding and butterfly braces come in!

Pardon my ignorance, but I've heard FM sources a lot of their stuff from China. Is this true? Not doubting their quality, but having gotten a quote on some parts from that country, I think they make a nice buck or two with that strategy.

only difference I noticed with my STB is that going over railroad tracks and pot holes is alot less painful. (I also have PPF bracing and a Koni/ GC suspension.)
