WTB Strut Tower Brace
« on: January 05, 2018, 08:58:46 PM »

Does anyone have a strut tower brace to sell or know where I can get one.  Goggle search is not turning up anything.

thanks...John

Looks like I am still on the hunt for strut brace.  SOHiperformance cancelled my order today saying they no longer carry it.  Anyone have any to sell.   I am looking for two.

What about fabbing up your own? Do up some paper templates for the mounts and cut/weld them up then work on the crossbar. Or if you've got a buddy handy with AutoCAD they could design some also.

A few places that might have them:

https://sportcompactwarehouse.com/performance-parts-accessories/suspension/strut-tower-bars?sort=5d&Year=1992&Make=Mercury&Model=Capri

https://www.go-parts.com/whiteline/whiteline-strut-tower-bar/ksb595/i-1754729.aspx

https://www.autoaccessoriesgarage.com/Suspension/Whiteline-Strut-Tower-Brace?set-vehicle=1&autoselect=1  (Says it's in stock and ships tomorrow....)

I suspect these places may not have it in stock but still list it on their sites...

Trackerrrr....all good points and you are right...so far, if they show it on their websites, they do not have stock.  SOHi actually showed it in stock, took my order/payment and then came back a day later to cancel the order and refund my money citing that it is no longer available. Sportcompactwarehouse has no stock.  Goparts and AutoAccessories show available, but they are going to confirm with Whiteline, but I suspect what the answer will be.  modern capri is absolutely absurb on their pricing. 

I had touched base with Rocketman during my search.   He is going to consider making some more if he can get a group order.  He asked for some time to work through that.

You can use a Mazda 323 BF Brace aswell. I know Ultra Racing has a few on stock on ebay IIRC it was 120$. Whiteline has a few on eBay too last I checked.

Nope that one is the BG model 323 that will not fit our cars. You need the 1986 model.
