    Early 1990's Strut Tower Brace

    I noticed while looking at some early 1990's Deville engine pics that the 4.9L Devilles seem to have a brace between the strut towers that the 4.5L Devilles don't have.

    Is this something worth picking up and adding to my 4.5L Deville?

    While I am asking- has anyone added Touring Suspension front springs to an early 1990's Deville? The front end on mine is a wee bit soft for my taste.

    guess what i found a 93 deville strut bar that i bought on ebay for 18.50 shipped and it fits perfectly fine just put a rubber spacer between the strut bar and the heater hose so you don't cut into the metal hose,it looks great CiiMick.

    It may help if you hit a new england sized pothole, and you live here so. It may be a good idea to snag one. I don't knwo why they wren't implimented in the first place.
