I was having a lot of wobble complements of a gigantic pot hole This strut brace fixed 90% of that wobble over uneven surfaces, resulting in a much more comfortable ride.

I bought this part for $225 and I wouldn't hesitate making the investment. If you're on the fence about it, and you have some wobble like I did, do it now.

First upgrade
I can't help but think something was loose and replacing the strut brace may have fixed that in the process.

Was your stock brace tightly set when you removed it? Strut mount bolts?
