    1996 850 t5 strut brace fitting?

    Hi all, I have a 1996 850 t5 estate, obd2.
    I am looking to get a front strut brace, but am finding that not a lot cater for the obd2s brake reservoir placement. Does anyone have any recommendations of strut braces/bars to fit? Thanks!

    Volvo OEM does the job nicely, mine came from FRF Swansea for 75 delivered... Although it was about 4 years back.

    Agreed! Come on JT, if we can put up with an old Volvo being fitted with a BMW engine then we can put up with anything you can throw at us
    1996 Olive Green 850 AWD - Follow the Project - Forged rods, 19T, big blue injectors, 960 TB, 3.25" MAF, Ostrich, 608 binary, arduino data display, active exhaust control with Focus RS tips, 320mm front brake conversion.
    1996 Nautic Blue 850 AWD - Failed its MOT, now it's a donor for the green thing.

    I've not seen wobbly in the gravel pit, but JT has had a few visits in his racing career, normally caused by naughty Volan's that like to depart his car mid race....
