These Garagistic e30 Cross Brace will increase the rigidity and reduce flex by connecting the sub-frame to the frame rails. This is an absolute must have for e30 cabrio convertible owners. Designed to help stabilize the frame and reinforce the lower front end removing chassis flex. This will fit all e30's except the IX. X-Brace fits all E30 models with OEM sway bars and aftermarket sway bars. Comes with all new 10.9 grade hardware, everything needed for install. Unlike other models on the market that do not fit right or touch the control arms, these cross braces are a direct bolt up that will not conflict with aftermarket sway bars or even extremely lowered e30s. All units come in black powdercoat. Custom colors are available. Compatible with our m60 and m3 swap components.
Test fits have been performed on an M3, 325is, 318is, and DOHC swaps. From the drivers seat you will experience increased rigidity over bumps and even roads. Have less pendulum motion from the motor, and less steering wheel shake. You e30 will simply feel tighter.
Please make sure that your exhaust hangers and motor mounts are in good shape. Old motor mounts tend to lower the motor which could lead the the exhaust touching the cross brace. Healthy motor mounts are a must with this x brace.
