190E Strut Brace?

I Have Been Looking For A Strut Brace For The Front And Rear Of My 190e. If You Have Any Site I Could Go To To Buy One That Would Be Great, And I Really Dont Care About Price.

Thanks

Try searching on German Ebay. I know Weichers makes strut braces for the W201 190. And Speedtek over on 190revolution.net is in the process of making them.

Just curious, but why do you want to add weight to your car? Are you aware of any chassis "flex" issues with the W201, or is this just some cosmetic "upgrade" you want?

I can verify that there is chassis flex when pushed to the limit on the track. Front/rear bars help quite a bit. Added weight, well, maybe a few pounds at best, the bars are made from light weight aluminum

hey guys thanks for the posts on my problem. yes it would be more weight but its not like 5 pounds is going to make a difference in the engine bay. im looking for better high speed performance. so if anyone else has a good site to go to for my strut brace problem, then tell me cuz im in great need of one.
also i went to german ebay and i couldnt find anything for a 190e. so that idea is out. if anyone can find any site just post the link and ill see what they have.

Thanks

Try this site, although this bar says its not for the 16 valve, don't see why it wouldn't fit with some modifications.
