Thanks for all who reply.
You are going to need six - M8x1.25x35mm bolts also because they don't come with the bar as a package. I picked mine up at ACE hardware.

If the strut brace was keeping the car aligned, we would be in big trouble.

Its only there to stop flexing under loads. Lateral cornering and other stuff of that nature.

Its a mod that makes the front end stiffer, which means better handling, more power to the ground etc.

Catalog is wrong - Bolts do NOT come with the tower brace - Part Number for the bolts is 11589407-6. $18 for the set

And set your torque wrench for 16 lb ft when installing the bolts.

Well idk if it matter or anything but the invoice after payment states that part number 11589407 with a quantity of 6 was part of the shipment so that interms is legally binding that that have to send it...there is a price on my paid idems for 3.94 for the bolts so it clearly states the bolts are payed and sent with it...we will see how it turns out and watch how verbal i get with them if i dont receive the bolts lol...they would send my he bolts free just to shut me up lol

2012-1822 I have your answer where to get a GM towel...there priced quite nicely too...at your choice of color or towel i will send you one...not gonna promiss im not gonna buy a normal towel and write "GM" or "CAMARO" or anything else you may want on it...all you pay is the price of the towel, the ammount for me to get the markers and shipping...plus or minus $50 for that custom hand writen styling lol

Order now and get the wash cloth half priced
