Question New Rear Strut Bar Option! BRP

Hi guys, I saw mention of a BRP rear stress bar that bolts on, instead of needing to drill. I am looking for one like that, but I cannot find one online anywhere. So, do you guys know of any other stress bars for the rear, where you do no have to drill?

Thanks.

yeah, i have been searching all night. no go. i have an 05, so that ebay wont work. i am looking for one that does require drilling. i cant believe noone hasnt come up with one that just bolts up to the rear towers instead. one guy on here said he got the brp one last april, but i cant find one at all, not even a reference.

The suspension designs and the interior of the cars (as far as the trunk spaces) has not changed. See as the focussport one works for all Foci. It doesn't matter what year you have.

Whats the problem with a little drilling? The install is honestly so easy. It took around a half hour with a friend helping me. The Focussport one is cheap, comes with all parts needed to install it, easy to install, and really works.

I know there are some who have this rear bar and love it but honestly I wouldn't want to brace my chassis against the two wimpy shock bolts there. There is a reason Focussport has you drill the holes through the thick ( i beleive 3 sheets) sheet metal. Chassis bracing is not something you want to do in weak spots.

com -on nem, just drill that sucker in there. its not that big of a deal, as long as you spray the outer bolt with some kind of paint that will not allow rust to build up, you should be fine. if drilling a hole makes you feel bad , after you drive and see how much of a dif you will feel better.

Check the search botton. Someone somewhere on here was selling one that does bolt onto the shock towers. I also remember that that is not the best place for it.
