If you don't have a ratchet strap you could also use some blog dread and loop it over the 2 arms, and then start winding it up like when you put up a fence

I know this may seem like a silly question but what is the advantages and disadvantages of adding the lower strut brace?

No disadvantages really. Improves handling on the citi 10 fold! Had one on mine. Never regretted it ever even with the crap springs I had I felt a major difference.

Hi Wikus,

Do you stock the rear brace for the citi also? The 1 that fits inside the boot on top of the shocks?
If so, price?
