    Strut braces... need to get some...

    Does anyone know where can I get hold of a front strut brace and rear strut brace for my Mk4 1.8?

    I'm hoping to go to Cornwall again for the 2nd year in a row. The roads are amazing there so i'd like to get the best out of them for a week

    I'm not too bothered what the brace looks like as I hear you don't need to spend a lot? A Sparco or similar does the job brilliantly I hear.

    Haven't treated the car in ages so help me do so

    Cheers...

    Just had a look on the PVD site and they're nearly £50 dearer for the front than www.needforspeed.co.uk :shock:

    Any ideas of anywhere else that'll do the rear one? I'm sure LordNikon has a rear one?

    Also... I have lowered the car with a full suspension kit but kept the original bushes... is it worth changing these for: http://www.pvdnet.co.uk/suspension/powerflex.asp

    Regals fitted mine, I think they are £250 and tighten up the rear no end ! Absolute must if you want the best handling on the G IMO !

    Cheers for the info steve.

    What else have you done to your suspenson? I'm not going to be changing my kit so coilovers etc aren't for me.

    Just want to make sure that adding a front strut brace and rear anti roll bar would do the job i'm after.

    Haven't decided on the new bushes? :roll:

    All I had at the time was the ARB, Front Strut brace and the KONI's. Was a dream to handle. Only swapped to coilovers due to the larger alloys for the larger brake calipers.
