Freedom Design Shock Tower Brace - 79.95 on sale from Finish Line Performance. It ended up being 90 bucks shipped to my door. This installation is REALLY easy. It also completely cured my 73mph shimmy! The whole front end is much more stable. We didn't notice nearly as much improvement on Harry's 94, so YMMV.
I really didn't like the lettering. Luckily it's just stickers, so a little scraping works fine. I used a specialty tool...my thumbnail.
The finish is pretty rough, but a little simichrome fixed it right up. BTW I found simichrome is MUCH better than the other chrome polish I had in the garage (turtle). Oh yeah, this is the rough pic, not the polished pic! ;-)
This is one of the ding the bar came with. Harry got this bar for his 94 on the same day as I did and his have even a bigger ding.
Polished up nice.
Looks good to me!
Drivers side. Just two nuts to remove.
Two more on the passenger side.
It's amazing to think that there is much flex between the towers, but there IS!
After bolting down the supports, you need to adjust the endlinks on the brace to fit.
It a piece of cake to do this job! Just tighten the brace down. Note that you DO need a larger sized allen wrench.
Dang! Now I gotta polish that cam cover!!! ;-)
I didn't like the red in my car, so I pulled it all out again and painted the supports to match my silicone turbo tubing. $3.99 for some coughchryslercough orange engine paint! For you digital camera people, check out the red vs. the orange with my Nikon 950. There is NO Photoshop work on this shot. That Nikon has the best red in the business, huh!
BEAUTIFUL! (If you ask me...) Ok, cmon, sign that guest book so I can show my wife! ;-)
