So the Mountune brace is built to straddle the stock strut brace; or rather I should say the stock one straddles the Mountune. In looking at the brace and comparing it to something like the TB brace, I really don't see a reason or need why Mountune chose to retain the stock strut brace on there. The Mountune brace has a hole in the brackets that will make a nice template for drilling the tower like the TB bar does, but then the stock brace will need to be cut up to allow access to the hole if it's reinstalled. I contacted Mountune and the response was "it's designed to be installed with the stock brace". I'm not trying to outsmart anyone, but it just doesn't seem to be any different to me. Once cut for access for camber adjustments, the integrity of that stock, stamped brace is out the window anyways. Just curious if you guys had any thoughts or know anyone that left the stock brace out with a Mountune brace.
