whiteboyslo yeah, it won't break anything, but you it'll be a lot different once you get your entire suspension setup done.

i also agree with egz. don't use one bar from a two bar set unless you really know what you're getting yourself into. if you only wanna do the rear bar, look into the progress bar or getting an SVT rear bar.

Egz They won't 'break' anything. However, if you are going with stock springs/shocks, and the Eibach setup, really think about installing both front and rear bars. The rear bar alone could lead to some dangerous handling traits, in my opinion.

Ok! I have a question about sway bars. Somebody at my job told me that I shouldn't put new eibach sway bars on my car if I don't have upgraded springs and shocks or I will brake my suspension?

I want to know if that is true. Could I buy sway bars and get them put on my car w/ out buying the eibach lowering springs and shocks because I don't really want to lower my car but I would like to get better handling.

whiteboyslo if you think that strut bar made any sort of difference (which i never noticed with mine, btw), than wait until you replace the sway bars!! that's a complete night and day difference!

Egz Glad you enjoy it.

When I had one on my 01, I felt no difference, on the track, or on the road. Looked pretty though.

Dbelle18 I just put my strut tower bar on a few days ago along w/ a set of new falken tires and my car feels firm and stiff. I take corners and sharp turns and the car is always in it's place. I will be buying the Rear Focus Sport Stut Brace from newedgeperformance this week! That should really help w/ under steer and body lean. Man im excited

bowersdaazian maybe its the fact that you have bald tires that make the strut bar give a better difference. Also could be the automatic factor. But a good investment is a good investment so if you are happy with it thats all that matters.

scironzts heh heh. i never really noticed too much of a difference besides when pulling into offset driveways and such. but glad you are happy with it!! i love mine, that's for sure.
