Fs: Werks kappa rear frame brace

Hey guys,
I am selling my WERKS REAR FRAME BRACE. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, just took it off today. Had been on for maybe 5,000 miles max. Here is the write up on the WERKS site:

“No fancy names here, just products that work - Introducing the new WERKSracing Kappa Rear Frame Brace!!!
The WERKSracing Rear Frame Brace bolts into the OEM rear subframe mounting holes and rigidly couples the rear of your Kappa like nothing else on the market! Through turns the rear end plants the power down a ton better than without a brace allowing you to exits turns a lot faster than before!
Features -
- Black powdercoated finish with WERKS logo
- Mild steel tubing
- Clears most exhaust systems on the market
- Easy bolt in installation
- Works in conjunction with other manufacturer's rear braces”


On the WERKS site it retails for $249.99 plus shipping. Taking offers if anyone is interested! The picture I included is the one from the website, I can take a picture of mine, no problem, it’s just in the garage right now.

"works in conjunction with other manufactures braces"..... so you have to have somebody else brace too? hard to see from that pic, but looks like it reinforces both(all 4) rear lower A arm pivots, not just the rear ones.

No, I believe it was stating that it is compatible with other manufacturers braces. Meaning that you can have both.

It will fit a 2.4 the only issue is some aftermarket exhaust systems if you have one I would check with Dave at Werks Performance to make sure it will fit it's a nice piece .

I went another route with some exhaust work and the resonators I decided to install would not clear the brace.

It is still available, although skersfan showed interest first and sent me a PM stating he would check with Dave on the fitment with his magnaflo exhaust. Still awaiting his response.

I have not talked with Dave about it so if you can sell it go ahead. Don't let me mess up a sale.

No worries at all! I don’t mind waiting for you to receive an answer if you are still interested.
