Avoid costly repairs from strut tower deformation in your MINI Cooper and Cooper S with the Strut Tower Reinforcment Plates (STRP). These plates are designed to strengthen the strut tower and prevent 'mushrooming' which can result from hitting large potholes or bottoming out the front suspension. Sold in pairs.
When your strut tower 'mushrooms', the alignment is adversely affected and can cause handling problems as well as premature tire wear. This is a small investment to prevent future problems, especially if your roads are less than 'smooth'!
By sandwiching the sheet metal between the strut and the STRP's 1/2 inch thick aircraft aluminum plate, it is strengthened ten-fold. The STRP retains 1/2 inch thickness throughout ensuring that there are no weak spots. Installation is easy using the included instructions, it will take about 10 minutes to ensure that you do not have to go through a lengthy and expensive alignment repair.
