Installing a Lakewood Strut Tower Brace 2010 Chevy Camaro Video - Pep Boys
Video on how to install a Lakewood Strut Tower Brace on a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. Step one is to
remove the retaining disk on top of the strut by removing the locking nut
on both sides of the Camaro. In your Lakewood Strut
tower brace installation kit you will receive two centering discs. The
centering discs will slip down centering discs between the struts and the
sheet metal strut tower. These will help center up the strut tower brace.
Carefully place the strut tower brace onto each tower making sure the
centering disc is in the inner bore of the sheet metal tower. Now put the
retaining discs back on which will clamp the bracket down to the strut
tower. This holds down the bracket to help locate your drilling points.
Once that is done, you are ready to locate your drilling points for the
fasteners using a transfer punch and setting it with a hammer to give you
the center point for your drill.
Remove the strut tower brace once again before drilling to not mar the
powder paint on the brace. Use a small pilot drill on the center point and
go through the both walls into the spring cavity then step up to your
clearance size drill. Drill all four fastening points. Now you are ready
to install the brace. Be sure to remove the centering rings, they are not
necessary after the holes have been drilled. Check for hole alignment and
make adjustments if needed. Grab a buddy to help you, now secure the strut
tower brace down with the 3/8" fasteners that come in the installation kit.
Reaching up underneath, this is where you attach your nut and nut washers
to the bolt and tighten down. Be careful not to over tighten the nuts.
Once the locking washers crush down, you are good to go. Go to

Test Drive After Install of Racing Dynamics Strut Brace
After installing my strut brace I wanted to see if I could feel any
difference with the steering and feeling of the suspension. I was
immediately impressed by how much the strut brace reduced flexing and
movement between the two strut towers. I don't know why something like this
did not come stock on the E39. In my opinion this is the cheapest/easiest
mod you can do and immediately get something out of it
