LTW E30 Modular 3 Piece Rear Strut Bar 

Product Overview

Based on our full aluminum version, this Carbon version is for those who want the lightest e30 possible! Over twice as stiff as aluminum, these high modulus carbon fiber tubes resist bending!

The Garagistic Carbon LTW E30 Rear Strut Bar combines modern design elements with tried and true fundamentals from BMWs Classic LTW models. Using their philosophy we were able to make a  chassis bracing to improve handling performance and increase chassis rigidity at the lightest weight possible! 

Our LTW strut bar is meant to be "Modular". Meaning you can add to it later. For example, you can start with the straight bar and when you need a little more, you can add on the 4 points subframe system in the future. (All strut bars have the provisions so you can add the bracing at any time in the future.

Structural rigidity is further increased with the addition of vertical support bracing to the rear strut bar. This is effectively reinforcing the strut towers by bracing them to the critical points on the E30 chassis' rear suspension. The verticle supports are anchored to the rear subframes differential mounting points closest to the underside of the bodywork. We highly recommend installing our secondary diff mount kit available HERE in order to spread the load and forces evenly across the rear diff mounting point and further increase rigidity and improve handling performance

Be sure to keep an eye out for our LTW E30 Billet front strut bars coming soon!

LTW Inspired

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 rear strut bars extremely light and stiff. By increasing chassis stiffness while keeping the car as light as possible. This was such a great part on the original LTW E36 that we made it for the rear on an e30!

Features

  • Material: Carbon Fiber with 6061 Aluminum ends!
  • Design: Stainless steel ends act as rear shock reinforcements
  • Adjustment: Modular ends allow for the installation of tower-to-base support bracing that ties the rear strut towers to critical points in your chassis' suspension. Because threads are inline with forces just like BMWs original design it also offers the most adjustment then anything else on the market,
  • Modular: Add the additional 4 points bracing when you need it. All strut bars come with provisions to add to it at any time. 

4 Point Chassis Bracing

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. 

Fitment

This unit is adjustable to fit all E30s (except for convertible models). Whether your vehicle has been preserved in a showroom for the last 30 years or if it is a race car, this bar has the adjustability to fit. 

  • Fits Most E30 Models (318i, 318is, 325i, 325is, M3)
    • Will NOT fit on convertible Model

Please Note: Fitment is not guaranteed on cars with prior collision damage

 

THE TRI-BAR SUPPORT BRACING WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ADD ON IN THE FUTURE. SIGN UP BELOW IF YOU'RE INTERESTED!

    Here at Garagistic, we have over 500 products with more than 700 total variations of those products which are produced in-house here in sunny CA. We pride ourselves in creating products from scratch out of about 75 different types of raw materials ranging from aluminum to Delrin plastic. While we do have stock of raw material, our products take time to for us produce, assemble and pack.



    Free Shipping Limitations:

    Free shipping is only eligible in the contiguous USA. Free shipping only applies to order that meet certain requirements set by us (and can be changed at anytime). Those requirements are currently that an order is over $450 and under the a "Dimensional package weight" of 30lbs. What this means is that roll bars, sway bars, and items we deem oversized do not ship for free. If your order is over this 30lbs rule it will not qualify for free shipping. Free shipping methods are at our discretion and CANNOT BE CHANGED. Most items will either be first class or priority USPS. Free shipping is not valid internationally and this list (but not limited to): Alaska, American Samoa, Micronesia, Guam, Hawaii, Marshall Islands, Northern, Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands. Customers will not be able to pick shipping methods (or overnight) if free shipping is selected. Qualifying order total is based on product subtotal—taxes and non-standard shipping charges are not included as a qualifying cost. You are responsible for non-standard shipping charges such as special handling surcharges and oversize fees (where indicated), Truck Freight fees, expedited shipping, hazardous materials charges, etc. Offer is subject to adjustment due to returns, cancellations, and exchanges. We have the right at anytime to revoke free shipping.




    International Buyers:

    Please be aware that we offer two shipping methods overseas. First class and priority flat rate envelope. Although first class is much cheaper, USPS seems to lag on delivery and there is no way to track the package once it has been dropped off.

    There is a 20% restocking fee for all returns. For custom parts (made to order parts like our engine mounting kits) there is a 35% restocking fee. We do not accept returned customized items such as driveshafts and wiring harnesses.

    The flat rate envelope is more money but you will get your gears much much quicker and the tracking number shows the package route! (the default shipping method on this site is this option).

    If you want the cheaper route, you must email us telling us this and we will send you a Paypal invoice. We are not liable if you do not get your package with this option as we have no way to track it once it's at the post office.
