One way is to weld a plate across the U shaped beam effectively 
closing it off.  In some model years there is actually a bar welded 
on the inside of the beam itself (my 82 Coupe has it).
It will make the beam stiffer and act as a anti roll bar.

I also made up a custom aluminium stress bar for the front.
It's a very simple design.  I also know of someone who has copied the 
design on the '92-'94 90 quattro (V6) and actually used the stock 
Audi components (brackets that weld onto the strut tower).
