BMW Stress Bar Installation
This tutorial shows the process of installing a Bavarian Autosport aluminum stress bar for an E46 BMW 3 Series. A stress bar locks the top of your 3 series' strut towers together to improve chassis stiffness and handling. The result is greater stability in hard cornering and better handling.
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
Strut Bar - Explained
What is a strut bar? How does a strut bar work? What forces act on the strut bar through the suspension? A strut bar, or tower bar, connects the top strut towers together, in order to increase the rigidity of a vehicle by allowing both strut towers to react to compression and tensile forces. A strut bar plays a larger role for MacPherson strut vehicles, however it can still be important in vehicles with double wishbones as well for compensating vertical forces.
