Fender braces for 05 LGT?
 
These were my favorite mod on the old STi. Hands down best bang for the buck suspension mod. Anyone know if/where they are available for the LGT?

Wrong model year lego but just found this link to better explain:

BM is the 5th gen chassis code. I don't think they'll work on the 4th gen (bl/bp)

Lots of wires in the way. Doesnt look like the lgt has any form of stock bracing (not my pic). I'm sure it could be done though.

I think Cusco makes braces for the BL/BP in japan.

I did know that but I guess I had a brain fart.

interesting, thanks. guess I have to take off the fender and talk with the local fab shop about measurements. getting sick of the front end being a wet noodle

Way over kill for this car.

With that argument, so is sway bars, strut braces, and aftermarket bushings. Nothing wrong with stiffening up the car to make it handle better. Various subarus came with this bracing from factory. However, it was basically a stamped piece of steel.

no disrespect, but if you've ever driven a subaru with stiff suspension and no fender braces, then added them after...the difference is incredible

If I knew anybody that has a TIG welder and could weld aluminum I'd be willing to make some. I'd would rather not make them from steel.

I have this brace in my car...

I went like...

Stock

Low down spring

Coilover

F&R tower bars and F&R under braces and roll center adjuster

Fender braces

I could feel improvement each time I upgraded. But this parts is not too cost effective(about $200)

Thanks FX. I contacted that vendor about shipping to CA along with RHD Japan.

Do the linked to braces work for 05 lgt?
