well we finally pulled my motor out so we can replace the shock towerS there both crack and the motor mounts shifted the wole front left side is in need of some serious chasis work, it kinda mad me mad, all those problems just kinda poped out of nowhere. no its time to fix it and make it nice and new, so at least theres a lot of good that will come out of it

Take your time and it will come out nice. I highly recommend the shock tower reinforcement kit NPD sells. I think my car could take a torpedo hit now.

They're a great idea. The more you can do to stiffen and limit flex the better, especially with our older cars.

If your thinking of a Mont carlo bar you might also want to get one of those one piece export braces.
