Strut Brace?

Looking to purchase a strut tower brace for my 2010 v6 camaro.

I have always loved the look of it so I decided to get one.

Anyone know of a good brand to purchase? Or where to get the cheapest one?

I've got the BMR 2-point. More for looks than anything, I think it adds some great aesthetics under the hood.

BMR and Hotchkis make good ones for the 10/11 style strut towers. Be aware that in order to use a factory strut brace, you will need adapter plates to mount it to the old style strut towers.

Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions, pricing and a shipping quote.

Best regards,

Tyler

The GM strut tower brace is nice but will not fit on the 2010 or early 2011 models with the rounded strut towers. You will have to have a bracket to make it work which is my opinion does not look good when you have to add that to it. Heres a link showing it with the bracket http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=192143

I purchased the BMR 2 point brace because it was the best looking one to me....but have yet to put it on because I have been dealing with airbag issues

Heres a link that shows some pictures of a few different braces mounted

No that one wont work...notice how the struts in that pic have a ledge that the brace tower sits on? The 2010's are rounded and it wont mount.

This is the one I bought but it says for V8 (not sure if it will fit on V6)
http://www.jdpmotorsports.com/bmr-st...o-ss-v8-stb013

This one says will work on the V6

be careful some require you to drill. They have a BMR rep on here that was very helpful...
