Bought a subframe brace from FKX Racing as they are one of the few companies I have found that make subframe brace. Purchased direct from their site but when I went to call for updated shipping info the number was based out of Hawaii and went straight to some automated voicemail. Anyone have any experience with these guys direct? fkx racing

The owner is Andy, he posts here all the time and he's a great guy. He's a true car guy and really cares about his customers. His number has recently changed so maybe that's why your having problems contacting him. I buy all my Eneos oil and Honda oil filters from FKX as well as various Spoon and performance goodies. He goes by the name of 'team3d' on here. Feel free to send him a private message.

Great to hear! There is some good stuff on his site and this was kind of a feeler for possible future purchases.

I use Fkxracing for my braces and Camber arms, I'll most likely be getting the Buddy club bbk from them too.

Do you have his new number or know where I could find it?

UPDATE...
was given some updated contact info and spoke with Andy personally tonight. Got some cool news that the subframe brace I will get is actually an update version with better performance. Excellent customer service and glad to know I have found a legit company with nice parts at decent prices. Instagram is definitely best option for contacting FKX Racing if anyone should need to in the future.

Update.
So unfortunately have to report after a LOT of waiting I was issued a refund. The part listed on site was apparently not in stock and I was told a new version was being made and originally told probably 2 to 3 week wait on the new version of the brace from date of purchase. After that time passed contacted again and was told still no braces but was shown pictures of the one that the machine shop had made for him and was told he would test fit and should have some ready soon. Told me I had only paid $180 but the "new" version would sell for $250 but apparently would still honor my purchase. Was told he would have 3 braces ready to go this past Wednesday....again though was told shop had yet to start them. Offered me some truhart brace for $120 shipped (same price as eBay). Refund issued following day. Asked about a possible discount on set of spacers for all the b.s since this was a pretty disappointing experience, even after being super pleasant and not really giving too much grief over it all and was told no.
All in all won't do business with this guy again and probably wouldn't recommend him. He seems to have done good business here and locally to him but unfortunately this was not one of those experiences.

Yea, at least you could get a hold of him. Ordered something the 23rd, they have my money, no response to calls, emails, pms, and no parts.

I have bought a number of subframe braces from Pro Civic. They have excellent customer service, are easy to contact (phone, email, etc.) and prices are publicly posted.

Just not a fan on most of the sub frame braces out there. The FKX one is really nice but unfortunately the transaction went the way it did. Truhart and sirimoto just don't do it for me look wise.

I have placed at least 5 orders from FKX Racing and have had no issues whatsoever - I'm in Florida as well, a long distance from them.
I can say that DM'ing through Instagram has been a help for a quick response.

Each person will have their own opinion and experience, but I'll keep buying from them as they offer great pricing, free shipping and good customer service in my opinion.

Alright, he has messaged me back. I will let y'all know how that goes. I really want things to go well because they offer a bunch of stuff that doesn't seem to be out there otherwise.

Yes, I recently purchased the Wilwood BBK and got some HAMP oil filters. Fast shipping. Best way to get in contact with them is thru IG.
