Default 06-07 monte, 06+imp strut tower brace

this is what you get when you order. it is a strut bar kit for 00 to 05 imp or monte and some grand prix. but to mount it to my 07 i had to do a couple mods;
gm PN# 12498648, comes with two bars gm pn;12456148 and hardware to mount it. paid about 30 bucks from JEGS and it gives the car a much more solid feel.



the rear one lines up with strut bolts, all you have to do is make one of the slots big enough to go on the strut mount, i made mine 10 mm..



the front is a little more difficult, you have to beat the area down a hair to clear the ps reservoir line.



then just had to center the bar and drill holes, you dont need to have the struts out to do it I just had them out and did it then
