Didn't have to do any thing with my struts when I installed my brace. Used the same TPIS Kit. just a pain in the A$$ drilling the holes at the right angle.

Lol. My daughter noticed the tighter feeling in the front end when I was taking her to her bus stop the next morning. She noticed it within a minute of leaving while sitting in the passenger seat. Thats when i thought no way then realized it shortly after.

Weird- couldnít find it on my phone. Iím sure on the computer it would be easier. Better yet, call them to see if they still sell them. tel:952.448.6021

Iím sure they do since it is a popular item among us 2010 and early 2011 Camaro owners.

Yeah that looks really good, I really like the color. This is mine, I wanted something different which is why I picked this brace. I bought it with no finish and had it chromed at a local company.
