    Default Strut brace on 1.8 VVT

    Hey guys an gals,

    Iv had a look thru previous threads an there are loads on strut braces, I couldnt however find one on a 1.8VVT Facelift. I wondered if this suffered from the rubbish clearance when fitting issue on the brake fluid res and actually being too close when bonnet is closed, and if anyone had a pic,

    fancy fitting the wiecher one.

    Cheers guys

    Cheers rush, looked like It will clear just then, I have to modify it for a nut that is randomly placed on the drivers side, did you have this issue?

    Thanks

    TBH I can't see a strut brace actually doing very much functionally, as the turrets are right back against the bulkhead cross member. Therefore torsional stiffness across them would be pretty good anyway.

    I know someone with a brace fitted and they say it makes a massive difference and its fitted to a Vec C too. Im thinking that I might just slip one in, if you know what I mean.

    I'm thinking that i will make a good difference also, as even with mine being lowered i can still feel the front twisting and was hoping that a strut brace will help the car corner flat
