Default Strut bar wanted

I am looking for a strut bar for my 2005 turbo GT
I want the type that has a double bar connected by flat plates or a single flat bar type.
I do not want the single tube type.
All the major suppliers are out of stock or discontinued
A used bar in good or repairable condition will do

Just in case you don't know - a strut bar from a N/A fits the turbo - you just have to cut the solenoid bracket on the passenger side to allow celarance for the bar. I bought a used one for mine and cut the bracket.
I'm mentioning it so you can broaden your search.

I got lucky and picked up an APC strut bar from autotrucktoys. They were clearing them out at $29 for the bar. The bar itself seems flimsy, (it's the tube style you said you wanted to aviod) however it did pretty much eliminate the problems I was having with bump steer. I also saw quicker turn in which just translated into body roll. Now with my new Cooper tires it just translates into sidewall flex. Oh well the tires ride nice and they don't go flat every two weeks like the Uniroyals it came with.

Back on topic tho, what some guys have done with these bars is attach them to the firewall as they pass right over it. If it's fastened onto the firewall it should pretty much eliminate any strut tower flex.

Autotrucktoys doesn't have this item anymore as APC is out of business now. I don't know about Race and Street or maybe Ebay. But if you could find it for a similar price I would think it would be worth trying.

what is the WTB forum?

FYI Nopi carries a double bar strut brace for $29.99.
I will have to modify the solenoid bracket but no big deal.
Thanks for the response
