84-87 Kit Car Shock Tower Strut Plates $31.95

 

 

Rear Strut Rings for 84-87 Fiero Kit Cars

 

Clean up your engine compartment area with these one piece plates, eliminating those three unsightly oval washers.

 

I had this idea for many years and I finally got around to working on this. Working with my friend on his CNC mill we made a set out of some pressed board material after taking the measurements. We set them on the steel chassis pieces I cut out of a 84-87 Fiero only to find out they do not fit very well. The large center hole is significantly offset from the 3 smaller holes. Why? In my opinion when they made the jig to hold the steel to be welded for the 84-87 chassis they got it in the wrong place. The 3 smaller holes were later drilled by the mill and drill machine. In my opinion this is why the 84-87 Fiero has these oval washers. The three oval washers visually diminishes the appearance of the 3 smaller holes not being symmetrical around the large center hole. If the holes would have all been symmetrical it is possible GM would have used steel rings instead of the three oval washers. To make them look and fit well we made several variations offsetting the holes etc until we had a design to make them appear symmetrical. One ring fits on the left and one ring fits on the right. They are not symmetrical.

NOTE: The offset of the three small holes to the large center hole varies on every other Fiero chassis. So when installed they may still be slightly offset but still  reasonably symmetrical to the large center hole.

 

Change this:

 

To this:

 

 

All edges are fully deburred, rounded and smoothed.


 If you order they will be uncoated steel. Later this spring I'll have them zinc plated.

 

 

Sold in pairs, left and right.

Final shipping cost is determined by weight of the item(s) and distance from Milwaukee, WI. Shipping prices quoted are for items shipped to the Midwest area in the USA. If you are ordering a single item or multiple items the total shipping price is determined after you place the order. I try to keep my shipping prices to a minimum and use Postal Flat Rate boxes whenever I can utilize them for an order.
