I had some handling issues with my daily driver and wanted to firm up the front suspension
( just didn't hold in the corner while getting on it)
had some steel laying around and about an hour later
.
afterwards took it for a test drive and it was very noticeable.......
Very enjoyable seemed quicker if that is possible...jv&s

I'm saving this brace for my other project didn't want to waste it on my daily driver....

I don't know how long I will have this car because my track record for keeping cars is well....
That being said I've had this 89 Auto GTi since 10-14 and that a long time for me to have a runner

My thing is getting them running and then finding them a home

just because you didn't buy it from jard doesn't make it a bad thing at all! you were being creative with what you had, and made it work!

I have 3 of jards braces , I know I could whip one up as well....but not having to figure it all out is sometimes easier, and I know he makes a quality aluminum brace that fits perfect, and if it doesn't that means that your car needs one for sure! damn weak frame horns!

perfect roadkill scraper! hmmm, you smell bacon? :lol:
