Check out this Strut Brace Mod
The flimsy metal bar that goes from strut tower to strut tower can be be modified to make a true strut brace that will help your car’s road holding performance, especially when cornering.
The stock “strut bar” on the S80 (and maybe some other models) is not really a strut bar at all, but part of a complicated engine mount system. It’s very flexible in order to reduce the transmission of engine vibrations to the passenger area of the car. But it can be converted into a real strut bar which will reduce the movement of the tops of the McPherson strut towers in hard cornering, which should make your car’s handling a little tighter.
Here’s how to solidify your engine mount into an effective strut brace for almost no cash. Total cost $2.28.
