    Edelbrock Strut Tower Bar.

    Purchased one from summitracing for around $125.00 to install on my 1995 Z28 convertible. The bar is powdercoated black and is built solid. It is a three point design going from strut tower to tower and then back to the wiper cowl (triangle). Overall install was simple and straight forward however you will notice that when it comes to installing the rear section of the bar you may have some trouble. Wiper arm removal is a must and getting a drill back there may be a problem depending on the drill (I actually have a spare hole I forgot to seal up). The bar performs about the same as any other strut tower bar. The front end does feel a little stiffer through tight turns and it is a nice piece of eye candy. The main problem I see with the bar is the three point design, to do almost any major work on the engine the bar will have to come out. I do not regret my purchase but if I could do it all over again I would just buy a regular two point bar.

    Why did you have to drill?

    The rear portion of the bar, top of triangle is bolted to the cowel where there are no preexisting holes

    Sho nuff, maybe someone that is a better mechanic might have an easier time but for me it would have been very hard to drill those holes if I would not have had a compact drill.

    Hopefully it wont put an excess stress on the cowl area and crack the windshield.
