Product Details

The stock chassis brace is hollow stamped and welded steel.  Upgrade to ECS Tuning's full 6061-T6 billet aluminum X-Brace.  By reducing torsional flex, our X-Brace substantially stiffens up the chassis by fully bracing the steering rack to the rear portion of the front subframe.  This results in improved steering response, accuracy, and feel, along with less slop and better cornering!  

  • Stiffer chassis bracing between steering rack and rear portion of the front subframe

  • Replaces OEM welded hollow steel x-brace

  • 6061-T6 billet aluminum construction

  • Utilizes factory mounting locations and installs with factory hardware

  • Compatible with ECS Transmission Street Shield or OEM plastic transmission belly pan

  • Fits both auto and manual applications

  • Includes new torque to yield subframe hardware required for install

  • No increase in NVH

See install PDF below for full install instructions.
