A MacPherson strut combines the coil spring and shock absorber in one unit. In this system all of the vertical suspension load is transmitted to the top of the strut tower. This loading can cause the strut towers and chassis to flex during hard cornering, which can result in poor steering response, cowl shake, and understeer in turns. A strut tower brace reduces strut tower flex by connecting the two strut towers together.

To get the most out of your car, the tires must have the most possible contact with the road, for optimal traction and steering control. More importantly, the car has to feel stable and predictable so you have the confidence to push the car further to its limits. A chassis that flexes won’t allow the tires to stay flat on the tarmac and makes for a car that lacks responsiveness and feel. A strut tower brace will give your chassis the necessary rigidity.

We offer strut tower braces for all popular performance cars like Camaros, Mustangs, and Challengers, as well as models from Acura, Honda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Toyota, VW, and others. You’ll find front and rear strut braces, along with triangular braces, on our digital shelves. Triangular braces tie both strut towers together and to the firewall. They’re offered for select models that require this additional degree of stiffness. If both front and rear braces are offered for your vehicle, installing both will provide the best results, but if you’re on a budget, start with a front brace.

Our strut tower braces are designed and manufactured by the industry’s top chassis and suspension builders. They’re made from tough, rugged materials like tubular steel or 6061 T-6 aluminum, to provide the stiffness your chassis needs, and have a polished or powder coated color finish. Many feature the strut brace manufacturer or vehicle make/model logo. Even if you don’t push your car to the limit, you’ll want to have one of these strut tower braces under the hood just for the high-performance look. And most braces can be easily installed with simple hand tools.

Now you may say “My car came from the factory with a strut tower brace, I don’t need to buy one”. Unfortunately, many car owners have had to revise that assumption when they went to install an aftermarket intake manifold, cold air kit, or make some other kind of engine mod and found that they didn’t fit with the factory strut tower brace installed. We offer braces for many applications that are designed to work with most engine modifications, so you can get the most horsepower from your engine while at the same time improving your car’s handling capabilities.

    How to Inspect Your Suspension System
    The very first thing to know about timely suspension system diagnosis is that the stability and steering control of your vehicle and, what is more important, your safety on the road depends on how often you make it. Automotive suspension belongs to one of those car systems that are constantly exposed to high loads and thus are prone to wear and tear. Most specialists recommend inspecting suspension system after every 6,500-7,500 miles or when there are any signs of its breakage.

This brace improves vehicle's handling very well. Installation of these took about 20 minutes and your BMW is on a road again. In addition, I bought rear sway bar for more handling.
