      Strut Bar Brace

      I'm on the mull of purchasing a strut bar brace, not too many options under $200(which is around my budget, not wanting to purchase the $270 off of Viva) so i'm just wanting to confirm fitment. I've found two options

      The first one is just your basic strut brace whereas the second one is listed as a Ultra Racing brace but advertised as a V60 and nothing listed under their S60 section. Will the 2nd link still fit the S60 Chassis? Specifically 2013 Volvo S60 T5 AWD

      try OMPUSA.com. OMP makes strut bars for 1000's of cars. also try Demon-Tweeks in the UK, they have an extensive listing. Years ago I bought a front strut bar for my 850 from them.

      Heads up on the strut brace. You can find theses both aftermarket and OEM on ebay as well. Note, for the OEM brace, you will need to cut the plastic grating over the strut tower in order to make it fit unless you are willing to replace the cowl and cowl covers with the r-design version. Take a look through the archives on this. There are dozens of pages on this topic from 2012-2014 time frame when people started modding this model and adding struct braces, rear valances exhaust etc..

      I had looked through a few of the threads. And yeah i was prepared to just cut some of the honeycomb off of my current set up. Looking on ebay i'm not seeing many options. At least not specified towards the s60. I'll just keep browsing though! Also nothing i'm finding at OMP or Demon-Tweeks. However i did leave them a "inquiry message" asking about it so we'll see!

      I contacted OMP for my XC60. I will see what they say when they back to me.
