Default Rear Strut Tower Brace, anyone?

Doods,
Has anyone fabricated a rear strut tower brace for our cars? In my BMW days, we would put one on the front towers and the rear.
When I back at an angle through the dip in my driveway in my '96, I hear the rear window creak as the body shifts from the twisting force. I'm wondering if a rear tower brace would stiffen up the rear of the car for better handling and all.

No big deal. What do you want it made of?

My supplier had one, but due to a accident with a tooling die, they have temporarily took all the Bonneville strut braces (front & rear) offline until further notice. I'm not pleased about this myself, as I had to refund some money back to people who had bought one before this happened too.
