Where to get a lower suspension brace for an auto.

Post

Back to the top
I seem to remember someone had posted a link to lower suspension braces a while back. I cannot find as I'm a technomuppet and get inundated with post about the wrong stuff.
I want one for my 92 Clipper cabriolet automatic. I might as well fit one whilst I cannot drive it, does anyone recommend a cheap reliable supplier

 That may work, but to install it you will have to loosen your engine mounts and jack the auto up, make sure that you have a block of wood under the pan, or that you have an engine hanger as there isn't but a inch of clearance between the pan and the control arm bolt on an auto.

Many thanks Briano,
 So, with that little clearance there is a good chance it will ring like a church bell after a wedding. That's why I wondered if anyone with an auto could recommend a lower strut brace.
 I have a Weber conversion so I don't think most top braces will fit either.
 It's just that whilst the car and I are under house arrest it would have been something to be getting on with.

There just isn't a whole lof of clearance on a Auto that the manual has…. and it is really really close quarters

I thunked that years ago some one made a upper brace or had it made for a Carbed engine…..  Most of the carbed cars I see over on this side of the pond are running the 16V and the carbs on the front side of the engine.

It was a rube goldberg looking thing that had gussets on the corners….
