Howdy, and welcome!
Don't know if you can return your braces, but most people agree that the cradle brace does nothing but add weight when you have good aftermarket bushings. I had the Pedders HD bushings in my SS and it was solid, no need for a cradle brace. The tower brace is personal opinion, some say they help others say no. If my Z didn't come with it, I wouldn't have one. I had the Pedders Track II w/ XA coilovers on the SS, all installed myself. What a difference it makes out on the road course! Arroyo Seco Raceway isn't that far and is cheap compared to the bigger tracks. Have a safe return.

Danvillekidd is right u dont need the cradle brace i never put one on mine and the shop didnt recommend it..I get all the work done at a shop out of houston tx.. but I jus found out there's a new shop in el paso called hammer performance that does all that kind of work including turbos and superchargers and performance builds so i might go check them out
