2012 GT strut tower brace

My dealer wants $267 for the stock brace ! I have seen a few after market ones but like the OEM one better. Anyone have a lead on one less expensive ?
Thanks>>

My GT has 18" wheels. Only the 19 and 20" options came with the brace.

I picked this up from Steeda $200 shipped its raised so it will work when I install the Boss intake. Besides, I like this one better then stock. It looks raw! Lol

If I wasn't on my phone id post a pic of it. You really should get one, just keep in mind that you need a compatible cai or the way overpriced install kit to reuse your stock airbox.

The dealer charges over 250$ for one! At 160$ the oem is great deal for those that don't have it and want one. I'm still on the fence about getting the strut tower brace for the boss mani. My be if I sell the oem brace I will get one.

Yeah, that's about what I was expecting to pay. I can install it myself but I've gotta play the waiting game for one more month.

Re: 2012 GT strut tower brace

I had looked at the the ones AM sells. I thought there was a side bar saying they would not clear the stock plastic engine cover, but yours clearly does !
