the boxes where the lower control arms mount. They are sheetmetal and you can weld the seems to keep them from ripping apart.

I use the MM nonadjustables and love them, but again I'm more of a cornering guy than a drag guy. For straight line I would probably cheap out a bit more and do something with just urethane bushings in both ends of the control arm, and I would also replace the upper control arms with something tubular/adjustable. JD's Performance seems to have a good deal for drag setups, and Stangnet's Partshopper has good deals on the Pro3i arms for cornering setups (very similar to the MM arms).

Place a jack under the box and "push it up tight" then weld around all seams, any place that two pieces meet weld it. Then take the back seat out and weld the spots that have pulled loose. Take the back seat out first, or it will catch fire.
