    Front StrutBraces?

    sorry to be a bit borring but i bought a lower OMP strutbrace and now i want a front upper one but OMP say they dont make one for my car, so i rang demon tweeks and they say they can get a whiteline one but they are about £125+delivery+VAT which is out my price range so just wondering who has got a strutbrace and which one,the only thing is i dont want a cheap one of ebay but have about £70-£100 to spend.
    any information would be great also any pics would be awsome

    cheers

    considering ur location bud - pop down to Revolution - they can usually cut some great deals - even more so if u can get a group buy!

    Ask for their best price for 1, 5, 10 etc.....

    They are an approved Whiteline dealer and thats where I got my front & rear ARBs from.

    Defo worth a shot!

    If u dont fancy a Whiteline - see what else they can do!

    Just be careful about how stiff you make the front end

    Supposedly for good handling on a FWD car you want the front soft and the rear hard to avoid understeering!

    If these were the guys that did the group buy (and the name sounds familiar!) then theyre great guys!

    indeed it is my friend!!

    one of the few AOC group buys that not only went the full distance and more importantly wasnt a scam!


    front and rear rock hard for me - ideal for oversteer
