Thanks for the heads up. I just mentioned that as a sidenote because I read several times of people using the subframe as a LEVER (bolts have nothing to do with that indeed) to install springs, so maybe they were doing it wrong . But the issue here is that most of the failures seem to originate from BAD INSTALLATIONS (like exhaust brackets removed by shops), and abuse, not by a defect.

Furthermore, seems like you're trying to make it a more serious issue than it actually is to sell your part. Unless you abuse the crap out of your car, such as hard launches causing wheel hop (something it was NOT designed to withstand), or a shop doesn't torque the bolts properly after being removed, car is perfectly fine. Just look at the few cases out of thousands and thousands of cars produced. Good day.
