A33 - Rear Lower Tie Bar / Cross Member Brace - Opinions?

Suspension and Chassis Gurus what are your thoughts on this brace? What type of effects pros or cons can you think of? It says it is connected to 4 points so def two on chassis and two on the solid rear axle beam.

Not sure if anyone here as even tried a brace similar to this of any kind. Not quite a sway bar to say the least.

Either way its nice to see someone still making products for our gen/chassis/model (A33)

Are there any pictures from a different angle that better show what's going on in front of the Scott-Russell link?

no extra pics that I can find at least on the A33, I can't even find reviews of this bar on any platforms.

If your lowered any decent amount with a 3" exhuast, good luck working that around it.

subframe connectors (SFC) prollly do as much or if not more than both of those, so go for sub frame connectors ( maybe those are rare now too )

as a more recent available option Ultra Racing also has Side Lower bars that I have had my eye one for a while, and getting ready to dump/waste the money to try it out. i link them just because they are the closest thing to removable sub frame connectors.

also its not as nice as matt's LTB Stage II but ultra also makes a LTB, maybe see if that fits with your headers?

Finding SFCs is very rare now. I did go through the ultra racing site all the stuff looks good just isn't proven. I even tried to search any reviews and found a video about some guy bashing them.
There is a guy selling Matts LTB I in the classifieds section but it won't fit with cattman headers. If I knew where to go to get it installed by cutting it and re measuring it I would try it but no where around here.

Let me know how the brace goes maybe it will be an option for me too.

can anyone tell me what the part is in front of the aftermarket brace? Would it be cross member? I can't find it anywhere searching by cross member. Mine is super rusted out.

"In front of" is a little vague - Is it "in front of" the way it sits in the car or "in front of" in the picture?

Can you add a circle or an arrow to show exactly what it is that you are concerned about?

That is the straight axle.

I'm not sure the axle's beam is what he means. Could be the Scott-Russell link or even the OE rear sta-bar that's tucked up inside the beam.


He hasn't been back since he posted his question . . .
