Ultra Racing Strut Brace - powdercoated Metallic Silver

I ship USPS Priority and Parcel post.
I just have to find or make a box to put these in.
I will pack them very well.

Please do not post unless you are interested in buying.
If you have questions you may post them here or PM me.

1 solid piece, measures almost 2.5 inches width.
I had it professionally powdercoated just last week.
Metallic Silver with clear coat.

I have to disclose, this brace is not a perfect fit.
You will have to modify your brake fluid reservoir to get it in tight.
Two other members here have it installed without issue.
I think it fits better on a 06 and up Mazda 3, but I am not sure.

I need pics of your engine to be sure it will work for you, I will only sell this if it will fit.

Asking $150$135$130 $125 + actual shipping, PM for quote.





Installed Pics, Powdercoated strut spacers and custom caps not included.







You will notice my brake fluid reservoir is tilted.
This is my fault from my modifications.
This will not happen to yours if done correctly.

Re: FS: Ultra racing strut brace $130 / Vibrant strut brace - SOLD

Price drop $130 + shipping, cost about $8 to $15 depending on your location, will go out USPS Priority mail.

I have had several members contact me about this but no follow through.

This is a crazy deal on a brand new powdercoated piece.

If you want this please pm me as I need photos of your engine bay to make sure it will work, I will not sell unless it will fit.

Very interested, are the strut spacer necessary?
and what exaclty would i have to do to fit it on my car? i have an 06 sedan.

Yes spacers are needed and slight modification to your brake fluid reservoir as well. Please E-Mail me a few photos of your motor, all those interested have failed to do this. I want to sell this brace, but only if it will work for you.

Re: FS: Ultra racing strut brace $125 PRICE DROP

They are already on your car, they are really plates that hold your struts in place with the existing bolts. They also provide the needed lift with the brace to give it clearance over the battery cover.

Yeah I could just sell it and not say anything, but Im not like that, here to help, not just about the money with me.

The brace is awesome, 1 solid piece, very strong.

So i dont have to go out and buy the spacers? i just dont wana get this any not be able to put it on right away!
ok, i lied, one more question! I see vibrant strut tower braces all over the forums, is this better quality and does it dramatically improve handling, or just a wee bit?
sorry so many questions, i just wana make sure im buying the best, or close to it!

The spacers are already on your car, look on the strut towers, there will be 3 -14mm bolts, spacer is below them. If you look at my pics, they are right below the brace, I just had mine powdercoated to match the brace.

Yes this is better than Vibrant because it is a 1 piece unit, will not flex at all. Once installed it will tighten up the front end and improve handling.

You can never ask too many questions, i'm glad your asking.

Send me those pics tomorrow and we can go from there.

You have to mod the brake fluid reservoir if it is in the way. the pics will let me know if it will be an issue.

Need pics of the motor - Front shot, left and right from the side.
