Will this Strut Tower brace fit?

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

Will this Strut Tower brace fit?

Postby DOHC_tuner » Mon May 13, 2019 1:02 pm

Im looking for a front strut tower brace.

I contacted MRZ but have not received a response....and their website looks like they just sell used cars now.

Will this fit a 1990 Beretta GTZ?

I actually saw this the other day and was curious. From the pictures it looks like its adjustable? But I'm not sure. I thought about getting it too haha

MRZ hasn't made a strut tower brace in years - I don't think Mathieu even has his car anymore.

Those braces linked could work, but I'd be weary if I were you - there were two different patterns in the strut mounts for those year J-body's - I want to say pre-91 were different than 91-94.

Your best bet is to get a strut tower bar off a Cavalier or Sunbird from 92-94; every Z24 and GT had them, and the convertibles had them too.

You'll have to make your own then, or hope that one you find online will work right. That style you linked I believe clears the firewall covers.

Wow, that's super cheap. I just bought one to see if it will work. Looks kinda flimsy, but we'll see.

Yup. And it had about a thread and a half on each end, so that's no bueno.
