So Im trying to add this
https://www.umiperfo...ck-tower-brace/

Ive read how its an easy install but it appears the ac piping will be on the way of the passenger strut tower. Has anyone installed a shock brace on a 94 Firebird v8 ?

I also then will get some sway bars and shocks and springs. I figured this stock Firebird would benefit from having new shocks and springs since later Ill be upgrading to 18inch wheels.

For springs, shocks, various suspension upgrades, best, most reliable source:

The owner has won SCCA class championships in a 4th Gen F-Body.

 

 

Shock tower brace will not hit anything, unless someone has altered you system piping..  Don’t spend the extra money on the chrome-moly version.  The only advantage is weight saving, and there's not much weight to be saved in a small part like this.

 

Might wast to look at Spohn Performance as well.  Everything on my 94 is from there.  He's used my car to get dimensions, do prototype installs, and has built a couple custom parts where standard parts won’t fit.
