Big diff. between Strut and Tower braces! See Chris Miller¹s 200-20V site
for much past discussion and the design for my strut brace.
All the 44 chassis cars are the same in this respect. Also, a preloaded
strut brace will give additional positive camber and maximize the
suspension¹s lateral stiffness.
