You may expand that to include the strut tower braces from WCF.

Just so you know, it was claimed in other threads that these braces are cosmetic only, probably because of the oroximity of the the box brace that forms the trunk wall. If you cut out the trunk, or your frame is badly rusted, you may see some benefit.

I don't need to include WCF brace because I own a Fiero Store brace, I'm aware it's strictly cosmetic in my aplication. I have the Rodney double strut deck lid kit and TFS strut brace, does anyone have pictures of this combo? With all the custom modifications I've already done I don't think this will be to difficult but I'd like to see what others have done. Thanks

i don't have the TFS or WCF strut brace, but this is what I did. Had to modify the pass side to clear the fuel rail cover.

That is one of the best LS swaps I ever set my eyes on. As to the OP, I only used 1 deck strut on the drivers side and its worked fine. Rodney try's to set you up with what you need our what your trying to achieve, good product overall.

Yes Rob that is a sweet looking LS swap!! That looks like the Dayrel Morse strut brace the way it sits behind the deck struts. TFS strut brace actually sits in front of them. I also have the duel deck strut kit installed, I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Depends a little on what is on your decklid. If you have a raised spoiler you might need the extra lift from the second strut..

On top of the strut itself ? That looks like a dustboot ?! Nice idea, I tried that just 5 minutes ago as I have some leftover boots


seems to work
