    No issues fitment wise. Less than 5 minutes to install. Only thing ive noticed at the moment at higher fwy speeds. Car feels more solid. Need to drive more aggresive to find out the actual improvements,

    I'm assuming the front strut bar will be priced lower than the sway bar?

    I wouldn't assume that at all. If it's made from steel, the construction process will be the same. Two fabricated end brackets with a welded tube between them. And that's at its simplest! It could get more complex from there.

    You can't price it according to what it does. ("Oh, it's just a brace.") You have to price it according to how much it costs to make.
    Simplify and add lightness.

    Bumping this because Alex poked me about making these. More interest from you guys means more I'm a bit more motivated.

    Make it light, incorporate a means to attach a torque strut, and a brake master cylinder brace.

    With that, I'm in! But, you have to get to it before I do.
