while it can be done with the subframe still in the car, id recommend taking the subframe out to weld those in 01. i dig mine so far, but you should buy the thick subframe braces that xecessive makes with theirs. which i am not sure if that would play nicely with the cusco brace.

assuming this is the brace they are talking about above:

(similar to the megan brace)

What about these SXE10 - Rear Subframe Reinforcement Gussets from https://xcessivemanufacturing.com/toyota/is300/sxe10-clutch-pedal-mount-kit-861.html
If I pick up a spare subframe those will definitely be considered.

Yeah, the plan would be to pick up a spare subframe, possibly get the Xcessive weld in gussets, Figs weld in plate, and then transfer all my components and bushings to the new subframe.

I already have Tuned Parts rigid bars, which are essentially the same thing as the subframe braces Xcessive makes.

The underbrace I would actually be looking for is like the one below. It's lower down on my list of wants/needs currently as I'd rather get an exhaust and subframe. The car is already fairly stiff with all of the arms replaced and bushings replaced so I doubt the under brace is even necessary.

I have rare and authentic used part , please check my for sale posting .
Thanks
Thanks for the heads up. You've got some nice stuff! Thera are a couple things that would be cool and are on my list, but they just are not a priority currently. Working on getting everything together for a 1jzgte vvti swap.

I already have TRD Yellows, Carbing front+rear aluminum strut bars, and the Cusco trunk bar.
