Has anyone tried this Rigid Collar thingy??..Pls feedback if you have ya...

Benefits of installing Rigid Collars:-
>> Removal of the spring effect - resulting in superior all round handling.
>> Accurate Vehicle Geometry - resulting in greatly improved straight line handling as well as a reduction in road noise.
>> Improved feedback through the steering wheel - resulting in a more positive feel when changing direction at high or low speeds.

Yes, it is good but costly
It helps to align the subframe in place. Spoon sports sells them at 600 plus for front n rear.

Oy downside is the material - copper

It acts like a crush washer so the moment u fit it n tighten the subframe bolts it will be flattened. If u frequently remove gearbox to change clutch, the workshop will have to loosen the subframe bolts by 1/2 inch for extra room clearance n subsequently tighten the subframe bolts back - this will cause the collars to crack over time as it becomes thinner n thinner

One example is your oil sump's oil drain nut's aluminium washer. It does not last more than a couple of oil change before it breaks

Copper is ok, but it gets crushed when u tighten it. It becomes brittle wen it becomes thin
