New Steeda Rear X-brace - Keeps rear seats!

If you've eyed our rear X-brace which was more cost effective than the Laguna Seca brace but still required a rear seat delete you either didn't want to do or did but didn't want to pay the cost of the Boss parts, we now have an alternative that not only lets you keep the rear seats in place, but is much more effective as an actual brace.

Our new Steeda Rear Chassis X-brace mounts to the rear shock towers instead of attaching to the sheet metal behind the rear seats. This design is more effective and distributes the loads between the rear shocks, springs and the chassis, and not just the sheet metal of the vehicle. The result is brace that is much more effective at chassis deflection reduction with improved suspension compliance over a sheet metal mount design, and did I mention you get to keep the rear seats?



Direct product link for ordering is here:http://www.steeda.com/store/steeda-m...race-555-5093/

These are in stock now and ready to ship.

Seen Gus post this up on s197. I like it, but I'd like to see some pics of it installed.
Is there any permanent modifications that need to be made like cutting of trim pieces or interior panels or cutting of the trunk carpet, etc...

Sorry ... I wanted to get that out first.

Gus provided the following [QUOTE][If you want the max effectiveness from the brace you have to weld it in. However a handful of people will not want it permanently mounted onto the vehicle and are more concerned about having it there for looks. Those customers can just bolt it on./QUOTE]

If you need more details ... send me an email at tim@steeda.com and I can send it to our install department and provide you with a list of steps that were taken.

Best Regards,

TJ

Unfortunately it will not fit with convertibles. It will interfere with the top.
