i hear the hooks that hold the steeda bar are bigger where you need to get them unless they come with them. eibach you don't need to get bigger ones

I can't vouch for Eibach but i put a steeda on my car and have no complaints... Steeda even gave me a price break.
It made a big difference in the car's handling. Went on w/o a problem... Have it a bit over a year now w/ no problems.

The Steeda kit is complete.

Steeda or whiteline are excellent options steeda kit includes replacement bushing and mounts and white includes only replacement bushings while using the factory cover mount.

I personally run steedas 24mm bar and can says it is perfect in my eyes. Bar has been on my car since January and has functioned perfectly. Only thing I have had to do to it is apply new grease to it


I have autoX a the spring summer and fall session of autoX a total of 14 races so far and have had no problem, plus I have been on 3 track events at NJMP and have not had any problems after that either. I would say my steeda is doing an excellent job and I'm not concerned about it breaking anytime to soon.

Eibach also comes with replacement bushings and mounts.

I believe the major difference between Steeda and Eibach is that Steeda uses welded ends and Eibach uses stamped ends. Also, the Eibach bar is hollow, while Steeda's is solid.

How hard are they to install?

Creative 10-30-2013 11:35 AM

Not hard at all should only take a half hour to do the rear. The front will take a little more time because there is more to remove.

Is steeda bar solid or hallow. I was under impression it was a hallow bar and whiteline was a solid bar

You are correct that Steeda uses welded ends, but the Steeda bar is tubular, not solid.
