Well, I would hate for you to have to take two different measurements.

How about giving Steeda what they need and giving us the accurate measurements?

These springs look like the drop I am looking for. I am gonna wait to see what REDFOCZ posts for pictures and a little review before I pull the trigger on a set. I am gonna guess that these springs are not Progressive Springs.

SteedaBrandon- When can we expect a set of Strut Braces be available?

I think the 2012 already has a strut brace from the factory under the cowl.

Sarcasm I sense it lol

When I order the springs which will be in the AM , this is what I was told. So I was going to record both regardless

I never noticed that. I just ran downstairs to my car. LOL! Looks like a piece of stamped steel, its tucked under the cowl pretty good. Maybe Steeda comes out with a better looking one then?

Would be nice, but since it probably wont help and could barely be seen might not make it to market.

Not saying that I would not get it though

Yeah. I would buy it too. Looking forward to you getting the springs installed so I can get a little review and some pics from you. It sounds like Steeda really did their homework on these springs.

I thought I read in a thread here that TJ or Brandon from Steeda confirmed that they will not be making a strut tower brace because of the reasons brought up by you guys.

Might have been in the Steeda Focus #001 thread.

You'd know more than me though REDFOCZ, so I guess there could be a chance.
