I was just changing my spark plugs this afternoon. While I was working away, I Noticed that the Black Bar that goes across the top of the engine ( I believe its called the Strut Brace) is quite loose. Is that Normal? Is there a way to tighten it up? Does it need new mounts?

its normal, it feels 'spongy' because its suppose to isolate engine vibrations, but you'll notice it hits a hard stop


some people put washers in there to stiffen it up (bob villa mod) but all youre going to do is make a lot of vibrations


ideally you'd replace the two rubber bushings with new ones
