GM Strut Tower Brace Adapter for early 2011
 
I have an early 2011 Camaro so the GM strut tower brace will not fit. I hear there is an adapter that can be purchased so that it fits. Can anyone tell me where I can find this adapter? I have not seen it anyplace.

I thought I read that the kit is to drill out the strut towers.

Yep. For 2010's and early to mid 2011's. If your towers don't have bolt holes you'll be drilling. From what I've read anyway.

Thanks, I have sent ray@rds a pm 3 days ago and no reply. I guess if I am going to get a strut tower brace I will have to get the BMR.

You can try to e-mail or call TPIS. They were suppose to start making more adapters back in Feb. tech@tpis.com Phone 952-448-6021

I am no expert but I don't think there is anyway you can avoid not drilling. I did call TPIS this morning and they are still making the adaptor kit and have them sitting on the shelf right now. I was told that the kit comes with a template on where to drill the holes and you can drill the holes from the top. You do not need to drop the struts because he told me you can then reach up in there with your hand to put the nut on the bolt and tighten it up.

I am now kind of leaning going this way instead of getting the BMR STB016. I am now getting ready to paint my engine cover fuel rails Synergy Green and if I go with the 1LE strut tower brace I will just paint that also before I have it installed.

So you are going to do just the factory GM strut brace?

Yes, today I ordered the 1LE strut tower brace and the adaptor kit. I am going paint my engine cover fuel rails and also the strut tower brace. I plan to paint the strut tower brace synergy green and then paint stripes that match the hood stripes.

So is it confirmed that you don't have to drop the struts , just drill holes for the adaptor kit and install.
