Best preformance for $ - anti-roll equipment

Which gives you the best preformance boost in terms of handling for the $ it costs (installation too, I don't have the knowledge/equipment to jack up my car and install stuff under-body?:

Front strut bar, rear strut bar, front lower tie bar, rear lower tie bar, or anything else i've missed?

we have a front wheel drive car, so a front strut bar is best to avoid understeer

I agree... the DC Sports front tower strut bar was one of the best investments I have ever made with my car. I highly reccomend it

Out of those that you listed then a front strut bar is the best, but that's not all you have to chose from. The main thing you can do to decrease body roll during cornering is to get a sway bar. In order of importance it is: rear sway bar, front sway bar, front strut bar, rear strut bar, front tie bar, rear tie bar. Then the polyurethane bushings for the sway bars fit in there somewhere. Anyway, the cheapest sway bar you can get right now is the one from the RSX (19mm), or the JDM one for the RSX (22mm). If your car is already equiped with a sway bar then installation is super easy. All you need is a jack and some jack stands. If not, then it's complex.

Anyway, for information on sway bars just use the search function of this site. Try keywords such as "sway", or "RSX" and "sway".
