I am telling Dave at PWERKS it is not a strut system on our cars. Also the CAD simulation that Dave at DDM performed, did not show any or much difference between that brace and the Venom brace.

Working on trying to remount the power steering reservoir as the Coilover to Coilover brace actually covers the fill lid on the reservoir. Thoughts or ideas folks?

I've done this using the kit that I got with my Hann turbo upgrade the DDM Works is similar a pretty straightforward install just make sure you have some power steering fluid to add when done . If you go on my homepage and click on the album feature (Solstice upgrades ) I've got a pic to give you an idea of what the final install looks like .The only drawback if you want to call it that is that access to the battery is limited but I use the terminal on the fuse box to hook up my battery maintainer so it's not a big deal for me .

Thanks, I've found this last week and am getting to ready to order one. I'm replacing the 1/4 panels with ones from Norm's and as the battery is the original 2008 battery I'll be replacing that as well.

Just curious, how long did it take to be able to pick up finished items? Still waiting on hood and fenders to be painted.

Norm is backed up with painting. It only took 2 weeks to get the 1/4 panels and front diffuser from him. I will be painting them in house.

Norm is still working on the ducktail spoiler design. I was wondering if anyone can recommend another supplier for a rear spoiler that installs on the bumper and if you have to do much work taking off the factory one.
