Strut Bars

Got one of Chuck's strut bars and put it on the 200 Avant wagon. The bar 
is very robust and the jackscrews allow for very fine adjustments. The 
jack screws looks just like the ones on the Nisson 350Z. Clever way to 
handle the differences in mounting that older cars will have and so much 
better than the slide mounts I usually see. I used the jackscrews to put 
some pressure on the strut towers and was actually able to flattened out 
the stress buckle on the passengers side. The best news of all was when 
I had the car aligned. For the first time in ten years I was able to get 
the camber brought within factory specs. Should be no more problems with 
the front tires only lasting 10-15K before they have to be replaced. 
Handling really hasn't change though the car feels more planted on bumpy 
curves. And it looks good.

If anyone has a type 44 sedan or wagon that has a problem at the stress 
point or just want to keep the front suspension where it belongs you 
have to get one of these cross braces from Chuck.

BTW, send me an email address and I'll send back some photos.
