What do subframe braces do?
Registered. It doesn't keep the subframe from breaking from the body; it's there to keep the subframe from collapsing on itself/bending inwards/outwards. There's a lot of load on the control arms when the car is turning. The brace simply reinforces the subframe. via

What is ASR subframe?
ASR subframe brace is a direct bolt-on part and is compatible with these anti rear sway bars: ASR 24mm swaybar. ASR 1" hollow swaybar. ASR 32mm hollow bar. via
What do chassis braces do?
Chassis bracing maintains alignment angles and spring rates by greatly reducing body or chassis flex. In fact, it helps every component in the suspension system do its job properly and you can feel the difference through improved turn-in, sharper steering response along with greater steering feedback. via
Do strut braces improve handling?
True, strut-tower braces, aka 'shock-tower braces,' are technically suspension modifications in that they attach to suspension components. However, they don't improve handling in the same way that stiffer sway bars do. via
What do H brackets do?
This allows your suspension components such as your springs, shocks, and sway bars to do their job more effectively with more stability. An H-Brace connects the underside of your chassis and frame by connecting 4 crucial points underneath your chassis that undergo the most stress during cornering. via
How do you stiffen a unibody car?
Unibody chassis stiffening can be done in a number of ways.
Another way is to relocate the factory leaf springs, if they are present. Stiffer radiator supports and torque boxes, strut bars and fender ties are also added to help reinforce weaker points of the unibody. via
Do fender braces work? (video)
What is chassis Flex?
Chassis flex is just another way to generate extra traction through corners on a low traction track. Its not always a good thing. On high traction tracks it will slow down cornering speed and increase traction rolling. via
Does a front strut brace make a difference?
A strut brace is not going to have as noticeable an effect on the way your car drives as something like a new set of coilovers, and there won't be much point in adding one to a car whose suspension components are saggy and worn out. via
Is a strut bar necessary? (video)
Is front strut bar enough?
Without the strut bar, one side of the suspension takes more load, hence it becomes unbalanced. It also reduces the wear-and-tear on other vehicle components and distributes the wear evenly, hence it is a little friendlier on your wallet for the long run. via
How far apart should h braces be?
Double H Brace Pull Assemblies: Double H Brace pull assemblies are required in straight fence spans at a maximum spacing of 660 feet. Brace wire shall be high tensile, galvanized steel, or 9 gauge soft wire. via

Which is better body on frame or unibody?
If you're wondering if a body-on-frame design is safer than a unibody design, the answer is no. Body-on-frame vehicles lack crumple zones, which can lead to severe injuries and even fatalities in collisions. via
Does roll cage stiffen chassis?
Forget a few simple bolt-on braces, a roll cage is the real deal of chassis bracing, and a vital part of any track car; partly to satisfy safety regulations, partly to massively stiffen up a car's chassis. via
Why is a stiff chassis good?
It certainly is important. The chassis of a car (or truck, or any other sort of wheeled vehicle) is the most important structural part. The more rigid it is, the better chance that all of the wheels will point in the desired direction. This is a Good Thing for control, safety, and comfort. via
How do you reinforce a car chassis? (video)
Can a chassis be too stiff?
You can hardly get a chassis rigid enough, but there are cases where certain parts of the chassis are too stiff. Telltale signs your chassis is too rigid are cracks and wrinkles on the frame and sheetmetal splitting on the body and other structures. If things are cracking, chances are they are moving. via
Does roll cage improve handling?
2) It Can Improve Handling
In the same way that added strength to the vehicle's structure helps to improve rollover protection, it also makes the vehicle stiffer. When you take hard turns, you will feel less flexing and body roll. via
What does a flexible strut tower brace do? (video)
What are strut mounts?
As the name (strut mount) implies, it's a component that attaches the suspension strut to the vehicle. In addition, it insulates the tire noise & vibrations from the vehicle. Many (front) strut mounts also contain a bearing or bearing plate that serves as the steering pivot. A strut mount is like a sandwich. via
What is a shock tower on a car?
Shock towers are well-known vehicular body parts. Generally, a shock tower is secured to body components framing an engine compartment and provides an attachment point for an upper end of a suspension damper, such as a strut or shock absorber. Shock towers are commonly formed using sheet metal fabrication techniques. via
How do you make a strut brace? (video)
How do you install a strut bar? (video)
Where is the strut tower?
The strut tower at the front of the car is found in your engine bay. First remove the nuts from the top of the strut, then place the bracket over the studs, re-install the nuts and tighten. via
What is a lower arm bar?
What is "Lower Arm Bar" ? Lower arm bar is an undercarriage reinforcement part, which helps to get the best performance that suspensions can naturally offer. It bridges left and right suspension arm's mounting points together so as to prevent suspension member from twisting, thus wheel alignment keeps straight. via
