i know i saw some online about a year ago but went back to what i thought was the same website and company and can't find it
anyone know where i can find a Strut Bar or Strut Tower Brace the bar that goes from one strut tower to the other under the hood
for a 2000 caddy seville i asume it would be the same as a 1998-2004 maybe even other years
but just cant seem to find the Strut Bar anywhere if anyone knows wher ei can find this would be greatly apreciated


Thank you

Cadillac dealer only, and now they're few and far between: the strut brace was mostly an export vehicle item. There were some in the U.S inventories up to 3 years ago, then they slowly disappeared.

The parts list has it as "Brace, cross", #25653157, about $45+ if you can find one. Maybe, just mabe, Luke in Parts at Lindsay Cadillac over there >>>>> can find one - he's about your only hope other than sheer blind luck in a junkyard.

It will do NOTHING for you unless you are able to drive the car to its limits on country roads or autocross. Otherwise it's mere bling.

I have a MINT Strut tower brace that I am putting up on ebay tonight with a starting price of $20.00. Only about 8 months old and in like new shape. I have it under listing # 320519779657 if you are interested... Cheaper than a dealer if you can even find one.

Yup 25653157 is the brace and it is offically dead.

Looks like GM Parts Direct has them for $25. Cost me $8 shipping for a grand total of about $33. Cant beat that. Heres a link www.gmpartsonline.net They also have great prices on other OEM GM parts....

deleted - I was thinking of GMPartsGiant.

GM Parts Direct is Flow Chevy/Cadillac in Winston-Salem, NC. I have dealt with them in the past and they seem to be able to find stuff that no one else can. (How about 2 cases of the old black-bottle GM EOS ?)
