Nice job!
I would have considered doing this if I haven't already bought the RedShift brackets.

"Stance"...The new jockstrap
Great DIY. I'm actually getting ready to put the rear sway, and Corsport end links on today, but won't get to make the reinforcement brackets for a week or so. $69 for Redshift brackets? I don't think so.

I appreciate the warnings, but I drive pretty conservatively. I'll still be taking it slow until we fab those brackets up. I'm not all that worried. There were only a few that broke, and I'm sure they were the kind of drivers that like to take on ramps at 100mph.

I would NEVER pay $69 for the redshift brackets. A huge rip in my opinion.
Honestly I could make multiple batches of these brackets in no time.
And save the 8thcivic members money. I won't though because I would surely
hear crying from someone.

But I will spend a good hour to fabricate my own. I highly reccommend everyone else
do the same.
