doesnt look bad. i would do it for sure cuz i have a lift at home. "An additional strut brace P/N 12456148 can be ordered for rear strut tower, but is a labor intensive installation." just wanna know what they mean by that lol
Well the first link worked, it was the second 2 that didn't for some reason. At any rate, I have no idea why they list them that way. As far as I knew the body stayed exactly the same 00-05. The 00-05 brace was a little cheaper though, I'd get that one. I have to wonder, what is wrong with the factory front braces? There isn't one in the rear, I get that. But the front has one across the struts, and 2 connecting the fenders to the core support. I doubt you would see a difference upgrading those.
Ok, so I decided to read the descrips in total, and this is what it says.
This is the $27, 00-02 Impala one:

For use on 1999 - 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo; 2000 - 2002 Chevrolet Impala; 1997 - 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. These are production Buick strut tower braces designed to minimize body flex. The kit includes ONE strut tower braces, hardware. (THE HIGH PERFORMANCE CATALOG IS INCORRECT) If you want the kit that includes two of these braces it is part number 12498648
This is the $23 00-05 Impala one:
DESCRIPTION: STRUT TOWER BRACE KIT
For use on 1999 - 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo; 2000 - 2005 Chevrolet Impala; 1997 - 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix. These are production Buick strut tower brace designed to minimize body flex.
The first descrip says that the 2nd has two bars, thus is a kit. Not sure what the deal is then....
