Default Rear strut tower bars

For the 2000+ Bonnevilles. I noticed my GXP has one in the front but not in the rear.

I remember my Regal'* bar made a HUGE difference when installed. I wonder if the Bonneville has a much more rigid structure or if it could also gain from having a rear strut tower bar.

Any thoughts? Unless I'm just out of the loop and one already exists.

No. You gotta make your own. I do have an extra set of brackets that sit on top of the rear struts, if you can come up with something for a cross bar. I used the front stb from my old grand am

I can find a cross bar no problem. Its the brackets I need. How much do you want for them? Where did you get them?
