Way too flimsy..dont bother. Compare it in looks of stegnth to either the OMP one (i have) or the GTT (the best IMO) and youll see neighter of those has joints at the strut end (the point of most pressure) Look at how they have sold mounts at the ends and that thing has a flimsy bit of metal....Its a cosmetic one...looks nice, sounds racey due to the "leightweight" etc but at the end of the day about as handy for practicle imptovement as taking a crisp packet and wrapping it round a set of loo roll tubes to make a strut brace.
Steer well clear IMO.
Stick to the sold strong looking ones. GTTs is mint...but it is pricey because its one of the best. OMPs is a bargain for 50-70 quid but not as good as Rolands. The JCW is OK but for what it is its not vary good £ for practicle. The Forge one is OK too but if your going for OK and want it cheap go for OMP
IIRC, the lower strut brace is the lowest point on your car, and with my car being lowered and occasionally clipping speed bumps and what not, I fear having a brace down there wouldnt be the best of ideas !! Thanks for the link though, he sells the upper one quite cheaply as well
The ebay link is the same people that I got my OMP lower brace from but I got mine direct through their website Strutbracer. It took about at week to arrive and I'm really happy with the results. The link posted by vigilante actually sames you about £6 over buying the pair individually from their website.
I've attached a pic of my lower brace. it sits just behind the plastic thing but it does not hang any lower. If you have a look at the one on your car and it's scratched/damaged then the lower brace probably isn't for you.
Don't forget though the bolts that hold the braces on are use once only so you'll have to visit the dealer to get some new ones. But they are less than £2 for the lower ones, The guy in parts that I spoke to couldn't be bothered to charge for mine and just sent them out, result!
