Advise please on strut tower brace

Just bought a 1SS and want to pop the mod cherry. Which strut tower brace is the best for the money? Preferably one that includes the mounting hardware with it. The GM one looks pretty good at $125. (not sure if that one includes hardware though) Any suggestion would be very helpful, thanks

If you buy the GM bar it should come with all the required hardware. Unless your buying used from another member.

I'd go with the BMR one... It's $129, and looks much more durable.

Once you start there is no turning back.

Suspension newbie here, what exactly does the strut tower do for us? I have a 13 SS.

Opinions can vary, but the general consensus is the tower brace just looks cool.

If you want to significantly improve the handling of your car the first step is new front and rear sway bars, IMHO.

It does nothing.

I got the GM one and the bolts were extra. It did seem to help even out the torque on pedal to floor acceleration. The car used to want to twist to one side right before trans shifted.
