Chassis braces / Strut braces for v70 fwd
Hey there! first post here. I'm driving a 2001 v70 t5.
I'm looking at a few braces on ViVa, specifically the rear cross brace, strut tower brace, and the lower rear brace.
Has anyone installed these? Are they worth it? I'm running bilstein b4's, eibach pro kit, and IPD sway bars. It handles nicely, just looking to get it a bit stiffer. It also just shakes a little on acceleration - I'm thinking cv axles as well to fix that.
Also, would the lower rear brace interfere with the IPD exhaust at all? Planning to put one of them in, I know they engineer it to be as away from the ground as possible, so I'm assuming it'd fit in there better than stock?
Thanks for input!
