Steering Brace (Wonderbar) Installed 

Installed the 'WonderBar' today pretty much everyone else installs on these vehicles. Apparently the purpose of these performs two functions. First, it ties the left and right sides of the frame together under the front of the car, which maintains the correct geometry of the pitman arm and idler arm during cornering. It's supposed to improve the handling of the car more than a STB does.

Second, the Steering Brace strengthens the chassis and takes stress off of the steering gear box mount. It is common in ThirdGen F-Bodies for fatigue and stress cracks to form around the steering gear box mounting location.

Since my car is 25+ years old, I was more worried about those stress cracks. Luckily I didn't see any, and this bar should prevent them from occurring down the road.

Still winter around here, so haven't really driven it at all to see if there is any difference in handling compared to without.

Total Cost: $55
