A two point strut tower brace will do nothing for you if you're still running stock suspension. Even with a good set of coilovers and uprated rear sway bar, I wouldn't waste money on one.

In order for any strut tower brace to be effective, it must be bolted to the firewall! Three points of contact.

See how it works on the new Aston Martin DB11:

struct tower bar is not chassis braces, many people mix the 2 and thing they are the same thing, but they are not

all the bars & braces have mulitipal functions, but the tower bar's main function is to "straighten the shocks" especially on a lowered vehicle. when you install a tower bar on a lower car, it will have less "leaning" sitting position (like a negative camber stance) and keep the shocks to sit more "upright"
