That's the Steeda aftermarket anti-roll bar, but some one has made a shock tower brace and installed it in at least one 2012 Sedan to date. That one goes inside the car and ties the rear shock towers together much like the brace in the front does.







This is what I mean when I say a shock tower brace as opposed to the anti-roll bar.

Bottom line dont waste money on bracing, spend money where it counts under the car and motor.

The steeda part is only for the 2000-2011 cars.

So that's not really a useful piece of information for any 2012+ owner.

Thanks for the google search though, Its not like I haven't seen that trick before.

The only brace currently made for the 2012+ rear that I've seen was made by the man who's pictures I used to illustrate what the rear bar looks like.

My car handles like a dime piece after the sway bar so I'm done wasting money on anything that doesn't add to car sound. Since there is nothing out yet that truly adds noticeable HP.
