    Hi All. Noticed Hellwig now offers a Frame FX reinforcement kit for the G-Bodies. Has anyone bought & installed it? I know it’s not a simple “bolt-on” but the reviews I’ve read so far seem to be pretty favorable, and people say it makes a noticeable difference in frame strength and stiffness. I’m assuming it also works on the wagons? Thanks.

    I purchased and installed one on my Malibu frame. It took about 15 hours for full install, and a plasma cutter isn’t necessary but saves a bunch of time. Haven’t dropped the body on it yet, but it increased stiffness significantly just picking up the corners. It will work on wagons.

    I have that kit on my spare frame and am planning to swap frames this summer on my Grand Prix. My welder really liked the challenge of installing it as it's a bunch of parts! lol! I also had the rear control arm braces from and notch kit done as well.
