1978-1987 Regal -
PAINTED BLACK REAR SEAT FRAME BRACE® KIT
This is one of our best selling kits!
Kit includes four braces, all mounting hardware and instructions.
This rear seat frame brace kit was developed by one of our subscribers who owns a Turbo Regal with T-Tops!
This four-piece custom-made steel brace kit attaches in a criss-cross fashion to your rear seat frame through the trunk. Originally from GM, the GNX cars had a special one-piece welded-on brace in the same general area.
We also offer the GNX rear seat brace kit, part #7169.
This is a better format because of its design. The more you can stiffen up your Regal, even if it does not have T-Tops, the better. By installing this set-up, you greatly reduce the chances of the roof pillars cracking.
We install this kit in all of our personal Turbo Regals.
Each rear seat brace kit comes with all the mounting hardware and easy-to-follow instructions.
This is definitely one of our most popular selling brace kits!

One of the BEST suspension upgrades you can install!
Subscriber, Dave Hamack from the west coast installed this kit on his 1984 T-Type...
"Although my car is a hardtop, I had this rear brace kit installed to help stiffen my car. I have to tell you Dennis, I have done a lot of things to my car, but this has been one of the best investments I've made yet! When I first heard about them I was skeptical whether they would do what you said. I highly recommend them!"
While considering this Rear Seat Brace Kit you may also want to take a look at GNX REAR SEAT BRACE #7169. This part is an exact reproduction of the GNX rear seat brace that came in all the GNX's. You CANNOT use both kits.
We also recommend to further tighten up your car with FRONT FRAME BRACES (2) #6564 and CONNECTING FRONT BRACE #6756. While the rear seat brace kit tightens up the back end of the car, the braces listed will tighten up the front end.

By tightening up the suspension with the above suggested brace kits, this will cut down on possible stress cracks in the roof line and help keep your doors closing properly.
