The discussion about which braces to get is a never ending one. According to some, Tom's (and to a lesser degree) Corky's RMB's (Rear Member Brace) are among those braces which make the biggest difference.
So I set out to get my hands on one. Unfortunately these braces are extremely hard to come by, although I did manage to have one shipped over from Japan. I took the opportunity to make some replicas of these. A lot of time has since gone by, but they're now ready and available!

Along with the RMB from Japan came another, smaller brace which connects the toe arm pick up points. I also made copies of these. I couldn't find an official name for them so I dubbed them TAB's (Toe Arm Brace).

At the moment I have 6 RMB's and 7 TAB's left



This is the RMB. As you can see it comes with a supporting beam on either side, as well as 4 bolts, washers and nuts to bolt them all together. The brace works both on pre- and post facelift models. The price is €345,00 including vat, excluding shipping.







This is the TAB. It's an exact replica of the Tom's one and is very easy to mount. I would advise against this brace if your car is lowered quite a bit. The price is €125,00 including vat, excluding shipping.

Finally a few things you should be aware of about the RMB: It takes two people to fit it. Installation is very doable, but will take some professional tools, a lift and modifying (or deleting) the nappies. Also, if you run a different oil pan, like one by Moroso, this brace will not work. If you run an engine other than either a 1ZZ or 2ZZ, I'm really not sure if this brace will fit. Finally, I'm from the Netherlands so shipping is not going to be exceedingly cheap. Shipping to countries outside of Europe is €63,30, within Europe it's €36,00 .

I like the look of these... but I'm planning on getting the Moroso pan, and my car is as low as can be.

I'm sure you'll sell these, they look great.
