The Garagistic E46 strut bar sometimes also called strut brace or stress bar was designed for the budget friendly and simplistic design. The simple design is based off the OEM E46 strut bar found on various models. A straight as possible bar with no hinges. This simple but superior design was thought out in order to maximize reinforcement to the strut towers by linking them in unison without any "hinged" features in order to maximize chassis rigidity. Doing so in order to give the driver the ultimate steering feel and handling capabilities in order to offer better turn-in and more accurate steering input. All Garagistic e46 strut bars are built using the steel and welded by our certified master welders.
How does a strut bar work in an E46 anyway? Well it does so by not allowing chassis flex at the front strut towers and ensuring suspension energy is contained within the springs and shocks. This ensures that your suspension performs as intended and allows for noticeable improvements in cornering for your E46, especially under hard use. Just like the E30 and e36, the use of a E46 strut bar in the front is much more dramatic of an impact then if used in the rear. If both are used, chassis longevity will be noticed and handling under track or hard use conditions. E46 front strut bars are designed to fit on E46's with no prior collision damage. The E46 front strut bar is available in multiple finishes including: bare steel, red powder coat, black powder coat, or blue powder coat (custom colors are also available on request at additional cost). Made in house at our Westminster CA USA location.
