How strange. I've always heard the 10AE brace was the best factory brace, and possibly one of the best available including the aftermarket stuff. Surprised you'd sell it and downgrade.

Thanks. That means the one I got is a MSM bar, or at least half of it.

Cody, I got the "bar" portion of the MSM strut bar. I can trade you that + cash for your bar. If you can source the mounts for it, youre set.

Can't believe no one's said it yet, but...

[m.net]
Our cars don't have struts.

Maybe you mean shock tower brace?

Hahaha, yes I know. Well I don't know...

What is better about the 99-2000 strut tower brace?

It's a stronger part. I don't know **** about them, but I've heard many times it's the better brace.

Yes, now that I look at it...the 2001-2005 looks to be thinly stamped sheet metal. while the 99-2000 is constructed of tubular steel.
