    I have the Hotchkis on mine. I prefer it over the others because the way it is shaped it puts it back closer to the cowl (more out of the way). Also you can remove 2 bolts and take it out. If you get a Hotchkis make sure your dipstick tube is not rubbing on it after install. Did any one else have that prob or just me?

    With my early designed, powder coated one it did rub. The new design (with braces welded in) and polished does not rub the dipstick.

    I have the Hotchkis strut tower brace bar buuuuut only cuz I got it for $50 at a junk yard
    I also got the rear sway bar and adj panhard bar and lca's also from hotchkis, and all for $200...
    You wouldn't believe how quick I took everything off that SS! I just wanted to get outta there before this dude did his research and realize what he practically gave me!

    But yea I gotta take off my strut brace to do anything in my engine, and I don't feel a diifference when I have it on or off. But it looks hella sweeeeeet in there!
