Finally, a rear strut bar that matches the caliber and finesse of the LTW front strut bar. The Garagisitc Billet E36 Rear Strut Bar combines modern design elements with tried and true fundamentals of chassis bracing to improve handling performance and increase chassis rigidity. The difference with and without strut bars can be felt immediately. Tune your chassis into becoming a handling monster.
Add the verticle braces to the rear strut bar and you are effectively further reinforcing the strut towers and bracing them to the critical points in your chassis' rear suspension. Similar to how professional roll cages tie the strut towers together with the mounting points of the subframe, this strut brace paired with the vertical braces introduces a significant degree of chassis stiffness and achieves tighter handling characteristics.

This rear strut bar design is inspired by the very rare US-only E36 M3 LTW. Following the same philosophy of shedding as much weight as possible to optimize the handling characteristics of the car, we made our LTW front and rear strut bars extremely light and stiff. By increasing chassis stiffness while keeping the car as light as possible, the LTW E36 M3s were able to perform at a high level even despite having less power than their European counterparts. Now you can have the rear LTW Garagistic rear strut bar to match the front!
Our LTW rear strut bars' modular design allows for two additional support bars to be added on which effectively add two extra points on the chassis to tie together with the rear strut towers. By bracing these 4 points on the chassis, you are able to achieve similar rigidity results as having a roll cage in the rear of your car. If you are looking for the ultimate rear strut bracing, then this is the option for you. Adding them to the main LTW rear strut bar is as simple as bolting them up. These additional support bars will be available to purchase separately soon.
