Which Gen 5 Camrys came with Strut Braces?

I'm looking for a factory strut brace for my 04 Camry and I'd like to find a used one. I'm wondering which cars came with them so I know where to look in the junkyard. Does anyone know, or where they installed at random? Thanks!

I think SE model. Also look for 2002-2006 Lexus ES and Solara models. They all use the same strut brace.

FS: *Acura RL 4 pot BBK setup Camry
*5th gen Camry/Solara TRD front strut tower.
*BC coilover with Swift springs
*02 Camry SE headlights.

If you are willing to hunt for a TRD strut brace then that would be another alternative.

From what I determined, as I'd like to put a scrapyard one on my 2.4L XLE myself: all SE and all V6.

I managed to find a strut tower brace at the junkyard today. It was on a Lexus ES. I forgot to even look for one, but decided to quickly pop the hood on that Lexus just to see if there was anything I could use before I left. Then I saw the brace- Score! I cleaned it up and bolted it on. I don't expect any difference in handling or road feel, but it looks cool and I feel like I did something lol.
