Attention In The Tower!
Minimize strut tower deflection in your fifth-gen Camaro with a 4-Point Strut Tower Brace from BMR Fabrication. Constructed from large-diameter 1.75x0.120-inch tubing, this product maintains frontend stability by canceling tower deflection. The BMR 4-Point Strut Tower Brace (STB014) mounts directly to the top of the strut towers at the highest leverage point for the greatest amount of stability. Additionally, two forward links tie the towers to the fender/core support area to further reinforce the frontend. Billet aluminum strut retainers replace the OE stamped-steel parts for an improved look as well. Installation time is only three hours and is available in black hammertone or red powdercoat.
