RIGID COLLAR™ is an original part developed by SPOON to increase vehicle body rigidity by connecting the sub-frame components to the monocoque. When vehicles are manufactured in the factory, many components are given oversized bolt recesses (holes) to allow for fast and easy installation on the assembly line. The components are aligned and tightened to specification and the vehicle is ready for the consumer. Instantly that any new car is driven, it becomes subject to shocks and vibrations which place force on all components and can create movement and even distortion resulting in compromised function of the individual components of the vehicle. Over time and mileage, these components are subjected to a compounding effect of these forces and this can lead to increased vehicle harshness and even component failure in extreme circumstances. The different materials that these individual components are made from also presents uneven wear and distortion additionally contributing to subframe and component movement.
