What I need is for you all with STB (Strut Tower Braces) to tell me what models & years have the STB as standard equipment first of all. Secondly, I need all other to actually mearsure where the STB would be if you had one & send me the measurements. I'll need bolt pattern diagrams for the Strut Tower & distance between the strut towers too. The reason for this is simple! If I can gather all this info, my original supplier for these STB'* will re-start production again of the Bonneville STB based upon your measurements! So whata say? Are you all willing to spend a little time & effort to re-make this back into a reality? I await all your measurements!

STB- is that the black metal bar running across the top of the shock mounts on the fron of the car just over the engine? if so then i have 1994 SE and i seriously doubt it was an option (absolutly NO performance options on this car)

Well my 92 SE has a STB as a standard option.

STB was stock from 92 to 99. The 87-91 didn't and the 2000+ doesn't ( I checked Tams car) no STB.

Yup. 92-99, all models.

Al, I can tell you the distance between the stud closest to the front passenger to the hole closest to the driver is 1036 CM. 518cm to the centerline of the engine bay.

On the 2000 and up, These same holes are 558cm to the centerline, but the 87-91 is identical to the 92-99. Some conflicting data on this.....the 1036 is listed as 1038 in another book.

I don't know the hole pattern size, though. I could make a template and figure it out if you need me to. I can also measure and verify the 1036 or 1038.
