Does anyone make the REAR upper strut bar??? Just wondering. I'm going to make my ride as stiff as possible... and since we have all that space in the trunk, putting a upper strut in the rear shouldn't sacrifice too much trunk space. :)

How about a rear lower strut bar (like the shiny chromy ones you sometimes see on a ricey Civic)? Those available? And do they help? :dunno:

well if it's just for cosmetic look then yeah, it's not hard. ask jesal and he can give you some pointers :)

but if you want a lower strut, the REAL deal, it's gonna be a big hassle. the bar would have to be thick, and most of the time it would be in a shape of a triangle (brace) to really tighten up the lower body. that would cost more than you would like to spend

Yeah... I'm aware of that. They probably have to cut that carpeting (?) thing in the trunk to get access to the top of the shocks area.... which probably isn't going to be too bad.

rominl:
I can easily have them custom make it... but I want it to look good when I open the trunk as well. I need to find a reputable shop to do it for me.

Songoku:
The front... I guess I'll live with the stock one for now. But the rear.... we don't have one yet. So I saw a lot of space for improvement rite there.


I'll let you guys know what I end up getting. :D

Songoku,
I think rears would be better than front ones since we are front wheel drive with understeer.
Since no aftermarket front bars are made, :cry: fronts would be good. A good alternative would be to get rear sways.

Best alternative (in my order of preference):
Rear sways
Front sways
Rears lower struts
Front lower struts ( or front upper strut)

Shock and spring mods anywhere above will definitely help.

I think I got my logic right.... :bigok:

bingo, thats exactly how my setup was. How ya like it?

the front rides smoother around turns...seems flatter...i don't have the sways, just the stock setup...you can put one on the rear but for looks only...I remember an old thread on the tl site.

parts needed:

2 0.5" threaded tie rod ends (1/2-20 thread)
1 24" threaded 5/8"diameter aluminum rod (1/2-20 thread)
2 12mm 1.25 pitch bolt 50mm long
a handful of washers to use as spacers...

I picked up most of the parts at a machine shop in irvine.
