Default Strut brace??

Where did the $21 strut braces disappear to? Just tried searching ebay and got no results. Was looking for one to ship to uk.

I called today and they couldn't give me an ETA. They are waiting on a shipment from the manufacturer.

Heres the response i got from the seller:

'unfortunately we have not had these in a long time. we also are not expecting to get anymore soon..'

The item number i gave them was:

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 PT CRUISER FRONT UPPER STRUT BAR (360370360541)<----item number. the user's name is 4caroption

Looks like we will have to look elsewhere? Anyone suggest an alternative for around the same price?

Called the place in California. The shipping cost in the U.S. is about $10. Bad news is that they are out of stock but are expecting more in about 2 weeks.

It seems you are looking for a bargain brace, but you might consider this option to not only stiffen the suspension, but add some dress up to the engine compartment. Go to customcruzers and check it out. There is an option for both NA and GT PT's. I installed one a couple of years ago and like the fact that this one bolts to all three of the tower bolts, and looks good too. Definately an investment of $$$ over the one you are searching for though... Performance : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce

I have a strut brace in my car but I never felt any difference with or without it...Maybe because of all my suspension mods I have?
