strut tower braces... anybody use em???
Posted 13 August 2005 - 09:05 PM
and i noticed how easy it would be to put in a brace in the rear of my brat... tons of people at school and stuff use them and i've seen some pretty good results... i know the rear is a torsion bar suspension but would using a brace help to stiffen it up at all??? anybody done it???
the front is a harder one to deal with... with the spare tire sitting square in the middle of the strut towers... and no room to go overtop... i was thinking of just using that one when rallying or something along those lines and having the spare strapped down in the rear... because hey i don't want to be fumbling with a spare under the hood when i'm trying to meet a deadline...
and for the rear... you wouldn't even be able to see it... it would be tucked really close to the jump seats...

Since I have relocated the spare tire to the trunk it was easy enough to do this with some alloy tubing.
I was surprised to feel such a dramatic improvement to the handling. I would reccomend this mod for sure.
