    Default Vectra C strut braces?

    do they exist?
    cant find them anywhere, although i did see one the other day, but his listing gave the impression he didnt know what he was talking about.

    Plus, he was having a complete giraffe on the price he was asking for it

    I have the alloy brace that LMF sell and it does make a difference !
    I fitted mine before lowering it with Eibach springs and i could tell straight away that it was tighter.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Since the firewall already connects the 2 strut towers, does the brace really make any additional difference? I've wondered about it on my previous A4 as well. It seems more logical (at least to me) more useful on rear wheel drive cars where the front towers are further ahead of the firewall. But on FWD cars, the firewall seems to effectively be a brace.

    Sounds like your "B" had less structural rigidity in the first place, so needed the help from the strut brace more.
