Yes, they should. The tower made it's debut in '07, and they quickly realized it needed braces. There was a recall to add the original braces that were round. Then they machined the braces to be "flat" with the holes in them that you will see on most of these towers. But I'm not sure enough to guarantee that you buy the linked brace kit unless it is able to be returned.

And yes, it really helps the sway. I'd buy them asap if I had this tower without braces.
