    i fitted my rear weichers strut brace today, was simple to do, looks awesome but to be fair the difference it makes is noticeable but no miracle. and soon i will be able to tell you all about the weichers front lower and omp front higher braces as they are being fitted monday :)

    I ordered both front struts on May 5th at my local parts shop. The top front and the back strut arrived May 19th. The back strut was sent back, a lower front strut was ordered. "It will be here next week, we promise" is what they are (and I am) told since then. It's July 23rd now and I'm still waiting.... If I had any pictures, I would be happy to sent them.

    Maybe I should have put up my post a few weeks ago. The lower front strut brace arrived today, July 24th. Looking for a time and place to build them in. Will take and send some pics.

    update on strut braces being fitted....they are fitted!!! :D lol but...regret it already, drove 2miles for a little test drive and omp front higher strut brace cracked my windscreen....gutted :(
    Guido said...
    Wow, how did that happen? Do you have any pictures?
    ReturnOfTheHardon said...
    i got no pictures at the moment but ill get some as soon as... and oddly enough ide just "tested" the strut brace round some corners and only when i was driving back nice n calmly did it crack my windscreen when going over a speed bump.... ah the joys...
    de Dikke Vandaal said...
    I wanted to fit the top brace myself tomorrow. I am reconsidering it now.
    The lower brace works fantastic. The car feels much tighter, especially on bad roads. The steering wheel was always a bit "wobbly", and was worst on bumps and potholes. That has gone completely now.
    For me the lower brace is a "must have". The top brace, considering Return's experience, I don't know yet.
    I have the non-adjustable ones from Wiechers, though.
    ReturnOfTheHardon said...
    i spoke to my local mechanic n he said that the top brace made the car "too" stiff so it didnt have the flex to deal with the speedbump... and there we have it...1 strut brace too far :(
    de Dikke Vandaal said...
    OK, the above mentioned "screws" should be "nuts and bolts", sorry for that.

    (Guido: kijk maar of je dit wilt plaatsen, of misschien kan je het veranderen, ofzo. Een "screw" heeft houtdraad, "nuts and bolts" zijn moeren en bouten ;o)
    de Dikke Vandaal said...
    By now I have mounted the top front brace too, and have done some kilometers. The car feels great. Steering is much tighter, much more precise. More than I expected. The bottom brace improves the feel of the steering, the top brace improves the driving. It feels like the car can handle a lot more horses, which I don't have ;o(.
    Mounting the top brace is not for the faint-hearted, though. You need to drill 6 holes in the strut domes, 3 on each side. So you need to remove the front bumper, light units, battery, loosen the inner wing protectors, and shake off anyone who says you are nuts to do so.
    -"It does not handle well?"
    -"Yes, it does, but there is room for improvement."
    -"So it does not handle well!"
    Then you have to get the six nuts and bolts in place. You need at least three hands, four eyes and two minds to do that. If you don't have those, you need a lot of plaster afterwards ;o(.
    Having the right spanners is also necessary. There is only limited space in the dome, and most of it is occupied by the spring. Once the nuts and bolts are in place, the hard part is over. Tighten them, put everything back and enjoy the ride.

    Oh, and make sure you've changed the light bulbs before you put the car back together again, 'cause it's nearly impossible afterwards. On the other hand, taking off the front bumper and the light units is a piece of cake after this exercise ;o).

    Changing the original air filter is slightly more difficult with the top brace in place, but still can be done. No real problem there.

    Finally! The last bolt is in place now. The car drives like a dream. Thanks to Guido for letting me share this adventure. I hope to some of you, it was helpful too.

    "More than I expected. The bottom brace improves the feel of the steering, the top brace improves the driving."

    Can you explain a bit more on those 2 things ? Many thanks

    to Andy: sorry for the delay.

    For remarks on the bottom brace, see item 14 above.
    Item 17 is mostly about installing the top brace.
    I did expect some change in behaviour of the car, but not as much as this. As it is mostly about "feeling", I can't say much more than I already did. The car feels totally different. If you are in the neighbourhood (the Netherlands, Betuwe area), I'd say come and have a look (and maybe feel...).
