Rear Strut Brace

Does anybody have a rear strut brace? I want to make one of my own and i was curious about the way it fits- if it's on the top of the tower or at the bottom. I know that it's a cheap part but i would pay too much for shipping because i am from Europe, so i'll fabricate one

are you talking about a rear sway bar? or the engine strut bar?

Oh ok. I don't have one of those but I did get a take off gt500 sway and strut bar. The ride is a LOT rougher and ive noticed a lot of understeer. The car dosnt want to "roll" into the turns it now just breaks loose and has a tendency to spin. If you are taking it to the drag do it. If its your daily driver or track car... Might want to weigh your options

I've read some posts of people making these out of used panhard bars. It should just stiffen the ride when you turn but should be ok for DD. I will instead opt to have a true five link read end suspension to improve handling.

well, mine is a convertible, so stiff suspension is not pleasant on mine that's why i go this way. i can fabricate it but i wonder where does it fit exactly... it can be above or below some bushes... that's a mystery and i can't find it anywhere
