Born on the track, the OMP MINI Cooper R53 Strut Brace allows suspension geometry to remain unaltered in hard cornering while improving feedback to the driver. The OMP MINI Cooper Upper Stress Bar features an adjustable pre-load feature critical to the stress bar's function. By adding tension between the shock towers you eliminate any flex that may occur during hard cornering. This is the function and job of an upper stress bar. Most units on the market are purely cosmetic offering no strut tower or chassis strengthening. Simply put, without adjustable pre-load your bar is purely cosmetic. You deserve better handling as well as great looks.
