Its actually a front STB but I want to use it as a rear. The only thing is that don romes brackets won't work in my case. the STB mounts on the bar I have are spaced out way further. Has anyone just drilled and bolted theirs in? Anyone used a different STB. This one is Square, and its mounts are about as far apart as the strut bolts are.

You can drill them, but you have to take out the rear struts to get access.

With the cheap price point and the availability of STBs, I don't know of anyone that has used something else. What did you pull it from?

It was a probably a early 90's Lumina? possibly. The engine was a 3100. the body was pretty tore up. So a positive Id wasn't possible

It was only 5$ so I couldn't pass it up

Use the one from a late model w-body. I used one from a 98 regal. Just had to open the holes up a little. I install them on to the rear strut mounting bolts.

That's what I have. You'll have to chop about an inch and a half off of the square bar then drill new holes for the brackets. I bent the long legged tabs on the brackets to fit them on the strut bolts. Then I drilled holes through where the short legged tabs were sitting on the strut towers. I stuck bolts through the bottom and had my kid hold a wrench on the head of the bolt while I tightened a nut down on top of the whole mess.

Maybe a little bit of a PITA, but it was still economical. I make less than $20 an hour at work, so any time I can save $20 by doing an hour's worth of work at home it pays off.

There are no cars that come with a rear strut brace bar, so you'll have to install it yourself. I make mounting brackets to make the job easier, plus it utilizes all 4 mounting holes in the bar for maximum stiffness. The bar stops the strut towers from flexing which makes your car handle better. You can install them in the front and rear for the ultimate handling performance.
