Strut brace

Hi I've been looking to buy a strut brace for the front and rear to tighten up the suspension. I can't find any on the net, does anyone know the best place to purchase from?

Cheers

I wouldn't have thought a strut brace would make any difference to the RRS. Somebody once told me that it ws originally designed as a monocoque body but at the last minute they decided to add a seperate chassis so It has a very stiff body on top of a very stiff ladder chassis (hence why it weighs so much) so i wouldn't have thought you would get much flexing??

Somebody may be along to prove me wrong though Thumbs Up

Indeed so. The drivetrain and suspension are all fitted to a ladder chassis, the body is a separate monocoque bolted to that chassis.

I doubt you could even fit a strut brace even if you wanted to - way too much stuff in the way between the corners.

To the OP - if you want car-like handling then you need to buy a car. A 2.5t 4x4 that works well off road is always going to be a bit soft on road. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed
