A strut brace is a metal bar that connects the top of the strut towers (suspension pillars) together. It is designed to reduce the flexing and twisting of the body, under heavy cornering, and on roads with steep cambers. Strut braces will reduce body flexing allowing better cornering and enhanced driver feedback.
Here are some of the benefits of fitting a strut brace:
- Improved handling: A strut brace can help to improve the handling of your car by reducing body roll. This is because the brace helps to keep the suspension towers more rigid, which prevents the body from flexing under cornering loads. This can lead to a more precise and responsive handling experience.
- Increased stiffness: A strut brace can also help to increase the stiffness of your car's chassis. This can make the car feel more solid and planted on the road, which can be beneficial for both handling and ride comfort.
- Reduced vibration: A strut brace can also help to reduce vibration in the cabin. This is because the brace helps to keep the suspension towers more rigid, which prevents them from vibrating as much. This can make the ride more comfortable and can also help to improve the clarity of the sound system.
