Whiteline do one that barces the upper wishbone mounts against the Kframe.

Personally, if your a bit handy, then make one yourself. I did, and found the improvement to front end grip well worth it. So I fabricated one for the back too.

It's quite easy to see how a front brace can improve rigidity, though how on earth can the rear be stiffined with a brace?
The rear of a car has a mountain of sheetmetal and glass, etc, to keep it all in check anyhow.

Yeah you are right about that, but it was handy holding books in place whilst moving house.

I also feel better knowing that it's another thing in the path of boot items before they get into the cabin.

No, but I got a pattern which I will get scanned in sometime. It's unpainted and uses mild steel, not the best looking but it's ok.
