Take the rear brace off your car, run the plastic brace, and run the aluminum brace...

i bet youll feel the difference between all 3... this lets you adjust it to your liking... maybe you want to run inbetween a plastic brace and no brace at all.. this would allow that.. ( im assuming it allows more flex than a plastic brace)

i've never run one, and probably won't...

just saying it does have a use... if you so choose to use it.
