What are strut braces? Do you mean strut mounts?

There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

Strut Braces aka.Strut Bars. Connecting my front struts together, and rear struts together... They are torqued to spec, and the rattle is only in the front on acceleration.

push the engine back and forth and see if it is contacting the strut brace when it moves.

what brand/model strut brace do you have on the front and rear?

As far as I know there is no rubbing on the bar. They are standard billet bars, purchased off of a local saturnfan, front mounts are manufactured, and the rear mounts are custom.
