    I don't have the Spohn, but another one made by another fabricator.
    Didn't notice anything at all, but the brace itself looks alot stronger.

    No clearance issues w/ the exhaust?

    I have it, well its in the trunk of my car. Im still waiting to find a shop that I can use their lift to put it on. I though about doing it while it was on jacks and jackstands but one of my dads friends died from something like that. So I will not do that. It seems a lot stronger, and will fit aftermarket Y pipes or LT's. Clearance will be a little issue, but not much if your stock height. I expect to scrape cause my car is lowered a bit IMO.

    It's not a brace. Doesn't do anything.

    it will connect to a raised area that is barely welded to the car. i don't see it helping anything, except maybe if the driveshaft was to break and fall. even then, barely.

    well i plan to get one or at least a torque arm that mounts to there, to go with my umi 3 point sfc's, which are good to have when using a torque arm like that.
