Pfadt Racing Strut Tower Brace and Sport Swaybar Install!

We just finished up the installation of Pfadt Racing's new Strut Tower Brace and the Sport Sway bars! This thing looks and feels even better in real life then it does in photos!

This is our first Strut Tower Brace Install and so far it exceeds our expectations.

We are off to the track this weekend for some "after" testing of the parts and will have feedback for you all later!

Here are a few pictures of Juan's 2010 Camaro L99, no other mods other then a custom dyno track tune and street tune by us with an SCT hand held programmer.

Will do! The install was very straight forward and it fit like a glove!

Do my eyes deceive me, or is that strut tower brace only a 2-point on each tower?

Does it require drilling?

Is there a package price for the brace and sways?

Nope, this is a real-deal 4-point brace! We chose to straddle the strut tower to create the strongest interaction in all directions of movement.

Yes it requires drilling.

Currently, we do not have any specific packages with the strut tower brace in it. But PM me and I can get you some prices!

Thanks for inquiring!

We put together this "package" as per request from our customer who wanted to track his car, but keep stock springs and shocks. The sway bars are a night and day difference from stock, and are a must for any Camaro owner looking for better handling.

I'm in total agreement with you on this. Every GM car/truck I've owned have had aftermarket/upgraded swaybars. The new Gen5 will be no different.

That looks great.

I can't wait to get my Pfadt sport suspension+ installed next week. I'm not getting the strut tower brace, but I am getting sway bars, end links, and drop springs.

Hi Fishdaddy,

Thanks for your interest in our coilovers. We have started receiving our first production batch of these units and are extremely excited to get these in our customer's hands. Next batch will be coming in shortly and after that, we have a HUGE order, that will not be all pre-orders. Let us know if you have any questions on these or other products.
