I have a rather interesting problem. I recently installed my strut tower brace and noticed that now I have what sounds like alternator whine inside the car. I thought at first it was the radio station. I turned off the radio and it was still there. Tried other things (turning off the heater) and that didn't work. Today, I removed the strut tower brace and as if by magic, the whining sound is gone! Anyone have any ideas/guesses as to what happened? I will reinstall the brace in the spring (when the weather is warmer).
