    Front Strut Tower Brace for DSRT?

    Anyone know of a front strut tower brace that will fit the DSRT, besides the Black Ops ONE (it looks cool, but I don't want to spend that much)? Would prefer a Mopar OEM part. I did a search on here, and didn't see much. I see a Mopar P/N SWMWKWD that doesn't get any real hits on Google anymore, and a one by Grocery Getter - and they have no activity since December and terrible reviews on their Facebook page - not sure if they are in business anymore.

    The Black Ops one may be pricey, but it is engineered to work.

    Not to offend anyone, but to me the Grocery Getters look like something leftover from a kids swing set.

    No offense taken. All forums have good and bad opinions on both products and services.

    I purchased the GG Strut bar a month ago and it does offer a slight difference in feel. It is def not as flashy or built as well as the Black Ops, but the welds were very good and the price was well under $300.

    Here is a closer pic on my R/T for reference.

    I was wondering what advantage strut bars would offer.
    I know they're popular but, just wondering if they are necessary. Especially if you're not tracking your vehicle.

    in theory the stiffest platform possible allows the suspension to be most effective during its travel. In practice this is most noticeable with targa and convertibles where cross-bracing either oem or after market can help.I have noticed less cowl shake with added braces.
