Recommended Posts

Seeing as people always ask if this model brace will fit this model car, I want to help compile all this information

Please put your PROVEN experiences here, eg:

Strut brace from my BG5 also fit my GC8

Also PLEASE DIFFERENTIATE between FRONT & REAR!

Hopefully this will help someone!

A mod can sticky this :)

BC,BF,BG,BD,GC,GF,BE,BH,SF all have the same spacing on the front struts so are interchange-able. However strut towers sit futher back in BE/BH so not all braces depending on the brace design.

Can someone confirm if BC/BF are also the same?

Yep I have one on my BH

Rear brace being installed at Autotech (they made it)

rear make any difference? or just bling factor?

I would assume not - just something solid to bolt your sub boxes to!

Sorry should have made my post clearer, talking about fronts only. Original post updated. :)

I make my own braces using 30mm U section steel for the brackets, and 25mmx3mm alloy tube for the bar. No adjustment necessary, drilled to perfection :P costs me about $20 per brace plus my own labour.

Subaru Ace 1990. When one owns an oddball car, one must get custom.
