- Attaches to upper strut mounting bolts
- Improves handling
- Reduces metal fatigue in strut tower
- Larger diameter tubing than OEM brace for improved stiffness
- No drilling
- Hardware included
- Lifetime warranty
Contrary to popular opinion, a strut tower bar is not under compression during hard cornering. During a maximum-effort turn, the strut on the outside of the turn actually is pulled out from the center of the car, not pushed toward the middle. It’s only under severe downforce caused, say, by a pothole, that the two towers try to get closer together. Either way, the result is the same: vague, wobbly handling under hard cornering as the camber changes randomly. Long-term the consequences are more profound: fatigue cracking of the chassis in the strut tower area. Add a strut tower brace, or upgrade your OEM brace with this welded steel brace from AEM. You’ll feel an immediate improvement in cornering precision. And you won’t feel the struts coming adrift in the engine bay as you go over a speed bump a little too fast. Installation is easy, and all hardware is included. AEM warrants that its Strut Tower Bars will last for the life of your vehicle.197.99
Brand: AEM Part Numbers:
John Concialdi and Bob Sullivan co founded AEM in 1987 as a tuning performance shop in Compton California. Both men had extensive technical backgrounds in engines and engine airflow, and in a short time AEM became the go-to company for performance modifications. By 1993, when the company relocated to Gardena California, it had become commonplace to see cars wearing the bright yellow AEM logo winning races. AEM tirelessly dyno tested and worked closely with racers and auto manufacturers in an effort to understand intake energy dynamics. This resulted in the sale of their first air intake kit in 1994. AEM can boast a number of firsts and unique products: They’re the first manufacturer to make an intake system with specific tube lengths and diameters to take advantage of pressure waves in the inlet tract; they developed the first dual chamber intake kit; they designed an air bypass valve to prevent hydro-lock should the air filter ingest water; and they created one of the first hybrid intake systems for modified cars. AEM continues to create innovative products to help you get more power from your car.
