We have one of the Ultra rear braces on my wife's '97 855 and I build something similar to it for my '97 T5.
We also have the big factory C70 convertible U-brace on each of them.

The rear braces did make a difference in the feel of the car and the handling.

With the big factory U-brace in place, I don't know if the side braces would make that much difference. Without that there, I can see them improving things.

Thanks for the information!
How is the ground clearance?

Neither of our cars are too low (I plan on lowering mine a bit in the future), but you do lose a little bit of ground clearance.

This is a pic of the wife's 855 (before we got the factory U-brace under there).
