What makes our triangulated Shock Tower Brace System #SS-6570EB better
Answer: Thicker and stronger then
our competitors, this new export brace uses .095 wall tubing and 3/16" plate
triangulating the shock towers and the firewall in one shot. This system can
also be used with EFI conversions. This system comes powder coated black.
Re-use stock hardware or purchase our reinforcement/hardware kit. Features a
bolt-in Monte Carlo Bar portion for easy access to your engine without removing
the entire system while retaining the rigidity of the similar one piece designs.
By centering the mounting locations of both the export brace and the
Monte Carlo bar right where the stress point
is (the shock tower), you minimize any flex from the car. The stock system and
others utilize the fender apron which flexes under hard cornering. You can also
get flex from the mounting point at the firewall. So we've designed a new
firewall support system to add even more support for high performance driving.
Are these better then the ones that use rod
Yes, much better! Why? The rod end
versions only hold the shock towers on the horizontal plane. In other words, they
hold everything apart. However if you hit a bump on one side, the rod ends allow
movement. This means they do not hold the relationship of the shock towers on the vertical plane. Ours
does and this improvement increases the performance and stability of your car.
