    I appreciate your efforts in bringing this stuff to market. I already have the other upgrade, so I probably won't be changing them out. However, I can say that it is well worth it to upgrade the OEM braces. My car now feels like it punishes the road most times, rather than having the road punish it.

    I am unsure which part you referring to. How about a picture of the OEM piece on the car is preferred.

    I think this is what he is speaking of, it is a flat stamped piece that looks like you can bend it by hand. I don't have the stocks photographed to compare but you can see them on your car behind the front wheels pretty easily.

    If I didn't already have the RRM ones (which I am very happy with) I would be in.
    Definitely an upgrade you can feel during spirited driving.
