Default need advice: Strut brace for 2008 GT Vert

Came back last weekend from 1,300 round trip ride from northern NJ to Myrtle Beach, car rode great and even got good MPG.. ~ 26. Noticed the front end flexes a bit on rough road or when hitting rough bridge/road. Figured a strut brace will help. I know there are many out there including 2 bolt & 4 bolt options. Also, we have the Factory Plenum Engine cover that it needs to clear. Please let me know what you feel is best one out there for the $$. And if I should just look at 4 bolt ones and stay away from the 2 bolt ones?? thanks a lot

Steeda's adjustable Billit STB works on many designs, call Steeda. Erik

The simple "Stack Racing" 'no-name' brace from AM worked miracles for my 06' V6 'vert.

Thx; I have seen the Stack Racing one and I see it clears the Pony cover plus is 4 bolt. Any other recommendations out there to compare?? Thanks

My car came with the Ford Racing model that looks similar to the Stack Racing. I loved it but had to remove it once I installed the plenum cover. The FR bar cleared the cover but dug into it once the car was in motion. I had to install the Steeda model below. Which by the way, does not perform as well as the FR bar. Are you positive the Stack clears the plenum? I may look at getting one too. I miss the tight feel of the FR bar.

FR bar


Steeda bar
