I have one. I bought from gm parts house. Started to polish it up and realized it's for later model 2011's if anyone wants to buy. Brand freaking new.

Looking at the BMR a little closer I might have to do a little modding on it to clear my oil dip stick ( I have a billet aluminum cover on mine ) I planed on cutting off the BMR plate anyways and putting in a personal one off the laser, and having it powder coated..

My dealer "GAVE" me a brand new original GM brace last Friday!!

But I had to buy a new truck, to haul it home!!!

Then I find out I have to buy an installation kit to make it work!! Oh well.

Does anybody make a strut tower brace for a 2012 ss? I've seen a lot of ones (like BMR) that only work on 2010s.

But you have to pre-drill your holes and thread them if you have a coupe.

The factory one will bolt right in on your '12 coupe.

Yeah, the 2012 coupe has pre-drilled holes. Not positive, but I believe the 2011's do as well.

Dumb question, Can you still get the engine cover off after installing the brace? Looks like there may be enough room for the stock GM brace, but what about the BMR?

Please take a look at our LSR strut tower brace:


Quote:
Designed, tested, manufactured, and assembled all in-house. Welded from thin-wall chromoly steel tubing and mild steel brackets. Designed to increase front suspension effectiveness by increasing the chassis' stiffness. This reduces the unwanted compliance in the strut towers leading to vague steering and uninspiring suspension performance. Powdercoat finish and polished stainless steel logo plate for looks and corrosion resistance.

Note: Fits 2011 and Up Camaros built after October 2010 only.
Let me know if I can help you with anything! Forum members do get a discount.
