I have a 98 ragtop. It did not come with the threaded holes for the strut brace from the factory like earlier cars. I got a $160 Kenny Brown KB-29501 strut tower brace cheap in a parts deal. It’s an 03-04 cobra brace built to fit around the blower. It requires a raised cowl hood like the factory Cobras. On the good side, it slips under the camber plates so requires no drilling of the strut towers. On the bad side, I would have to have the cross bar cut and re-welded lower in order to clear my hood. My alternative is to pick up a factory or aftermarket brace that fits a 98 GT and drill the crap out of the strut towers for mounting bolts. I did that on my wife's car before I put on the lowering springs and I know it is a really tight fit trying to put a nut on a through-bolt around the spring then. I was thinking of Marson threaded inserts, but wonder if they are strong enough and is spending $100 on a kit worth it vs. just standard old nuts, bolts, and washers. Gotta decide which direction to go. Any opinions?
