BMW Strut Braces & Stress Bars

BMWs need some added chassis strengthening in the front. You may notice some "chassis flex" when cornering or driving over a bumpy road. The reason for this is the incredible amount of force being applied to front strut towers. They have a tendency to flex when force is applied to them. Tying the strut towers together with a brace reduces the amount of flex and soldifies your car's chassis. Easy installation.

This genuine BMW strut brace was designed exclusively for the E46 3 series by BMW and is modeled closely on the factory strut brace used on the M3. This strut bar has the benefit of a factory design to minimize front-end flex during the hardest cornering, which keeps your tires squarely on the road and delivers the traction you need when you need it most. At the same time it's exceptionally light, due to its hollow profile and brackets made of aluminum. Shock absorption is also increased, which reduces road forces and body roll and lends a firmer road-feel. The center bar is polished aluminum but appears black in photos.

This item fits the following BMWs:

This carbon fiber strut brace uses a flat-oval design with a hinge-less mounting system that makes this one of the best strut braces on the market (especially at the price!). Cornering forces can put stress on the chassis, especially when used with stickier tires and stiffer suspensions.Strut braces help to reduce chassis flex by tying the two strut towers together. This design is stronger than most strut braces that use a hinge on the end that allows additonal flex. This design has fixed end mounts that the strut bar is bolted to. The slim oval tube is 100% carbon fiber for excellent strength and rigidty. The entire assembly is less than 5lbs and installs in minutes.

Fitment note: the end plates on this brace are closed. Some aftermarket front struts have an extra tall strut pin that will interfere with this brace.

This item fits the following BMWs:
