Utilizing heat-treated cast aluminum feet and mandrel bent, thin wall 4130 Cro-moly tubing the PERRIN bar is strong while remaining lightweight.
With Subaru’s MacPherson strut design; the vehicles entire verticalsuspension load is transmitted to the top of the vehicle's strut tower.For this reason there is inherent flex within the strut towers relativeto the vehicle body.
If left un-braced your car will suffer from “dynamic-alignment changes”. During performance driving there is enough flex to alter what should be static camber, toe and caster settings. This change can make steering response and body roll more pronounced and unpredictable.
The PERRIN Performance strut tower brace solves the problem. During cornering the PERRIN strut brace transfers the load of each strut tower via tension and compression of the strut bar, to the opposing strut tower, reducing flex by sharing the load and tying the strut towers together.
The improved chassis rigidity enhances steering precision under highload conditions and reduces under steer. Tire wear and metal fatigue inthe strut tower area can be reduced.
