These reinforcement plates are made of 3mm(1/8”) steel and are great for anyone who is doing a suspension refresh on the aging 911 model years 1965-89. We have noticed on many chassis that the rear torsion bar mounting posts crack where they are mounted to the inner sheet metal. This is caused by worn bushings and a load transfer from the spring plate directly into the mounting bolt bosses. They were not designed to take this load. The solution was to reinforce the area sheet metal by tying in all four bosses and spread the load across a wider area. This kit is 2 brackets and one welding alignment plate to keep the correct spacing of the 4 bosses while welding. This kit was designed by Jamie Novak from the 911 forums on PP.

These reinforcement plates will work on all 67-73 cars. They will also work on any later car that upgrades to the early sway bar mounting points. The "through-body" setup has superior geometry and there are a lot of cars that are already upgraded that could install this kit. The stock sway bar mount plates sandwich the inner fender material which is not a heavy gauge to begin with. This reinforcement panel significantly thickens and strengthens this area. People who have installed a larger than stock, or stock front sway bar will benefit from installing this kit. Free shipping in the Cont.
