Default Miata Frame Rail Braces *PRICE DRPPED* - $130 (san jose south)

Craigslist, no affiliation. Posting mostly because I'm curious who's making these...they have holes similar to (but not exactly like) the Boss Frog rails.

I got some Frame Rail Braces for all Miatas. Its just like the FM ones but stiffer. Our braces are made in the U.S. and is direct bolt on. We used a T304 Stainless Steel to stamp out the braces and all of the hardware are all grade 8 nuts and bolts. Selling the Braces for $130 firm. if you want me to install it I will do everything for $280. You can email me at [email protected] or call or text at 408-401-6591. Ask for Sunny.



These Braces help the chassis not to flex as much. And you will noticed it right when these braces are installed. Just installed a set on my 91 Miata and it was a night and day differance. The car handles so much better and i help with the over steer alot. The car is alot more nutrual and easier to handle.

It's not distracting until it gets to "nutrual".

Oppz I meant to say I'll get one when it's down to $100. I was on my phone.

Looks like he's not getting enough business, it's a good chance the price will go down more in the next couple of months.

Not mine - I didn't add any holes. Wanted to differentiate from the FM ones so they didn't come after me.

they are simple to make, sure, but the price HEAVILY depends on quantity.

Me and my dad were actually considering starting making these a few months back, but unless there is like 20 people in line (like we had when Stein made them, adn again when Travis made them) it really isn't cheap

Shipping isn't bad - most of mine shipped for around $11 UPS ground +/- $1.00. Even overseas shipments for me were about $45-50 IIRC.
