Free rear strut tower
« on: February 09, 2011, 07:03:36 PM »
Bill, is this what you had in mind? I think this is a 1985-86 front strut brace. All we gotta do is just add some material at each end and bolt it up

Something like that, but instead of cutting the ends and only having 1 bolthole, weld a piece of 1/16" plate to the ends and drill new holes to fit properly

:thumbs: We could even utilize 3 studs on each side, but 2 should suffice.
