How did this after market contraption help your Vette and it's handling? What are the real benefits?

C4's were designed to run without the roof but the frame is less rigid and in some cars very noticeably so. I had an '85 that was fine without the roof, but my '90 shakes like a tire is out of balance. I had Tommy make me one for the '90 and it solved the problem.

These are sought-after and shouldn't be hard to get rid of. This is a very good price for one of these. Mine was closer to $500 and I don't think Tommy makes these anymore. I see them pop-up fairly often in WTB posts, though I can't say if they are wanted for earlier C4's.

I totally agree. My 85 used to shake and vibrate pretty bad. It was smooth as silk WITH THE TOP IN after I replaced the tires and did some work to the wheelbearings and some of the bushings. But I would still get some steering wheel shake with the top out also I noticed that it didn’t grip as good when i was doing some spirited driving. With the support bar it was just as smooth and the handling was as good if not better than with the top in. I would refuse to drive without it. I paid just under $500 for mine with shipping. I upgraded to a C5 so that’s why am selling it.
