Nothing. That's the problem.

As far as stiffening the stock arm for track purposes, there's reinforcement kits you can weld on. basically consists of a few sheets of metal you weld on. bracing.

Seems like you just want to buy it for the sake of having it. Totally unnecessary and the stock arms are 100x better IMO than any aftermarket junk.
That's an odd claim to make. Stock arms are fine for stock purposes, but once you require the need for adjustment the stock arms use becomes limited. The arm isn't stiffened for track purposes as the arm isn't a high stress item. The flimsy stock arms are a testament to that.
