Default GXP Strut Tower Brace...does it have one?

Attention GXP owners

Does your Bonneville have an STB? I'm asking on behalf of a friend who hasnt had any luck with getting info from GM Canada.

I dont recall if it even has one, but if it does, I would like to know the Part Number.

Thanks

I remember reading on one of the posts that it does but it won't fit our cars because it interferes with the brake reservoir and alternator.
It was Rogues remark about Scott'* new GXP.

Front or rear? GXPs have both. I am not able to find any part numbers on them tho... haven't gotten a mirror and tried to look where the eyeball can't go yet.

I'm not sure that they will work on anything else... the GXP suspension is significantly different than the SLE.

What about the SSEi from the year before?

From the pic of the GXP, the brace would interfere with the alternator on our Bonne SSEi'*. Too bad. :(

I'll check and see if I can find part numbers and try to post a pic of the rear brace (my front brace is up above)... like I said tho, the braces are only part of the suspension upgrades on the GXP. I think the struts and the mounts are different as well but I'll leave that determination to the real gearheads!
