i recently read something about the "hinged" strut tower bars...if they are hinged...they should move...thus not providing extra support as a solid bar would...Just a thought...
Yep anything with a flex joint has potential for slippage.i recently read something about the "hinged" strut tower bars...if they are hinged...they should move...thus not providing extra support as a solid bar would...Just a thought...
Yeah, definitely.Here's something about strut bars:
The strut bars with hinges will provide the same effect as those without. The pressure and stress is not affected by the hinge due to the fact that stress is spread throughout the bar. The main thing to look at when buying a strut bar is the quality of the material, the thickness of bar, and those with hinges (the thickness and strength that unites bar and mount).
Please know that most manufacturers make strut bars with hinges due to the fact that as the car ages and its driven hard, the chassis of the car tends to distort. This will make installation of a welded one piece very hard, sometimes impossible depending on distortion of chassis. With a hinge one this won't be an issue and chassis distortion will be reduced and balanced no matter how distorted the chassis is. Check out the link on top; very helpful.
I recommend Beatrush or Cusco. Both are great with lots of track experience to back up there R&D.
