Rear struct brace alfa 147

Hello all,
As title says does anyone know anywhere that actually does one?
Just after tightening up the chassis a little bit without resorting to changing the anti roll bars.

Thanks vey much

If I forget the fancy and expensive Japan stuff, only Wiechers makes rear strut braces for 147.

They do actually have 2 designs.

First one is simple bar with two flanges and you need to drill the suspension turrets and bolt it on. Its available in steel and aluminum and is quite cheap:

Second one is from the Racing line of Wiechers strut braces. Available in Alu or carbon, but the prices are 2-6x more than the first option and the probelm is there are no real pictures. I contacted Wiechers about a year ago and asked them if they had any, but they replied that unfortunately not and confirmed you need to drill the body as well to fit it. So buying it is a little lottery as you have no idea how will it look and install once it arrives.

But I have seen them offered in many shops in Germany, here is the alu one:

and here the carbon one:

The steel one from Wiechers is actually quite cheap so maybe worth taking a punt on.
However in saying that If I was going to go down the steel route I am sure I could probably design something and get it made locally. After all its only a bar with some flat welds on it.

I shall look at the rear turrets and see what can be done. But I might order the Wiechers one for a punt.
