    Astra H Strut Brace

    Hey all,

    my next door neighbour has offered to make me a nice front strut brace for the car.

    but he has given me 2 options.

    1 - bolted on
    2 - welded on

    what do yous think?

    am more looking at the bolted one coz i can take it and get it sprayed etc but then again i think the welded one will do more stability wise..

    I would go bolted personally, because you can remove and sell on when you sell car or if you dont like it.

    Gives you more options than if it was welded on.
