E46 Rear Strut Tower to Subframe Brace Bar
Tie in your rear strut towers and subframe mounts for increased chassis rigidity ~Help prevent damage to the strut towers and subframe mounts ~ In preparation for our true coilovers, we've made the ultimate rear brace bar that was developed using a great deal of technology by first 3D scanning the E46 Chassis, then laser cutting plates and notching tubes, and finally we test fit our tig welded non-adjustable structure on several cars to get slotted holes that would accomodate the observed variations for the ultimate rigidity and reliability. After hole sawing & drilling the floor panel as shown in the gallery, and bolting the feet down with included m12p1.5 bolts & flatwashers, the bar clamps to the 2nd floor panel agaist the rear subframe. ***SEDAN MOUNTING NOTE** ~ Although the bar was designed on a coupe, the sedan just requires a spacer under the feet. Coincidentally if you use our solid subframe bushings in the raised position, that frees up the 8.75mm top spacer which is perfect for the job of fitting the strut tower bar to the sedan. Installation can be done entirely from the top without subframe removal.
