    Usually bracing and bushings are a balance of NVH and cost concerns. Too much bracing or too firm of bushings and the ride gets harsh, things started to rattle.

    Gotcha, I already have a bunch of rattling so I might as well add it.

    The GT350 tramlines and the R takes it to a whole 'nother level. I assume this is just because of the Cup2s. It is definitely on my to do list.

    A G BRACE stopped your tramlining?! That's profound...

    To mean, that means that very much the K member is not up to the task of what the front end is being asked of it. Did your steering feel change?

    I'm of the same opinion. Tramlining is a result of tires and/or alignment. This brace has an impact on neither. One could argue that it minimizes flex under certain dynamic conditions and that impacts the alignment. Bump steer is the more likely culprit under those conditions (when tires aren't defective, alignment isn't out of whack, etc).

    Why not the 4 point brace?

    Well, guys, idk what to tell you. Without any alignment changes, my car doesn't tram or wander 80% as bad as it did.

    Someone in here had said their car stopped tramlining after adding the brace so I figured I'd try it for $80 and I'm glad I did.

    If the brace made a difference in the way the car feels to you that's a win no matter how you classify it. I'll say this, my recent addition of 6GR wheels has had me wondering where the tramlining I had before went to. I went with a 305 up front as opposed to the 295 the car came with. I immediately noticed a difference with the fatter Continentals over the narrower Michelin tires. Tread design? Compound? Size? Any combination of the aforementioned? I can't pin it down. On it's face I'd have guessed that the tramlining would have gotten slightly worse.

    But I feel a difference, much like you.

    Width and tread pattern play a role, could be a little bit of both
