    Well spent yesterday and a little bit of today installing my subframe braces. Haven't got on it to much, but they made a nice difference on my 2010 so figured why not. Took me a few min to remember how to reinstall them, but ended up going just fine. Now I can't wait for the front and rear strut braces to come out.

    I would love to put on front and rear 4 point strut braces. Have them on my 12 SRT Charger and they sure do lessen the body roll. We would have to relocate the coolant tank over the passenger strut to enable strut brace installation. Until I get my Charger Hellcat, I won't know if this is possible or where to relocate. How do the subframe braces feel on turns?

    Do they use stock location for mounting? Do you have the part number for these and who you got them from?

    From what I've read, they may be the Razors Edge subframe braces. And, I've also read that to do it properly, they should be welded in. Very curious Aaron.

    They are from Petty Garage,

    Petty s Garage Online Store - Online Store

    They are bolt in, and use most factory holes, you do have to drill 2 and enlarge one, I didn't want the weld in ones becasue i wanted to be able to remove them, hence why i took them off my 2010 and moved them to my 2015. They don't list them as being availbile for the Hellcat yet. I did email them asking if they would work but they had not yet had one in to try. So i told them i would. Emailed them back today and let them know that they fit just like previous years, only differnce was the under body pannels on the "15 are better then previous years. Also on the new ones, the jack point/cone is a better design, but also a seperate unit and not molded like the previous ones. I did suggest that if they offer a kit to make an "add-on" option to get these peices made out of billet so that you can torque the bolt better and not worry about crushing the plastic. I may do that later, or i wil just install a spacer. I used a bigger fender washer and it torqued just fine. Took my a couple hours to do, wasn't to bad. I also chose to modify the under body pannels to go around the bars. Previous years they just said to take them off, its just something i chose to do.

    You can see it in my 3rd and 4th pics, that little black cone. Thats the jack point i was referring to as well. I notched them as well to fit against the bar, those i may get made out of billet. How they are is fine, i'd just like to get a better torque on that bolt and not worry about crushing the plastic lol

    So taking Aaron's post(thanks!) I contacted Petty Garage and there is no such parts(rear frame connectors) for the Charger HC or not. I then replied asking if there will be for a HC as I will have slicks and they stated it will be sent to R+D

    Hmm, didn't know that, I thought at least in the middle if the car where they install would be the same.
