Yeah... We can put the front strut bar and the rear strut bar, and the front tie bar, and the rear tie bar. I think that's it.

You put the rear strut bar in back betwean the strut towers. They're visible when you lift up the carpet in the back towards the back seats.

I guess once all the strut & tie bars are in place we can now start on SWAY BARS (If you don't know bout this go to intrax's website)

Our cars have understeer. After talking to a couple tech's, "in their opinion", suggested using sway bars to correct this.

Moderator's / Tech's on website: Correct me if i'm wrong on this.

Actually upgrading to bigger sway bars first makes the biggest improvement. Then it's the strut bars, then it's the tie bars. Then maybe a monkey bar (goes across the interior in back betwean the seatbelt bolts). Intrax will have sway bars out for our cars soon. K3wl.

It's sort of near the wheel wells towards the back seats. It's there. I clearly saw it when I had my interior body panels taken off.

yeah, the ones i've seen so far, the rear upper strut bar, have attached to the bottom of the tower which would run it across the floor board. you could cut holes in the carpet at those areas and run it over the carpet so that it is visible. f i am going to spend the money, it would be cool if someone can see it. I a holding out for oe that attaches to the upper strut tower. it would be more beneficial.

there is no such thing as a front lower tie bar, but there is such a thing as a anti sway bar for the front and rear. Normally Eibach, Progress group, Suspension Techniques, has those type of applications. I think Eibach offer it for the rear sway bar only.

What's that smell? It's a N00B! Go to www.neuspeed.com and click on "SHOPPING" then chose the category "Neuspeed Front Lower Tie Bar".
