Just be careful. I got used to driving with mine in and one day I took it out and reinstalled it but forgot to tighten it all the way. It came loose under a hard turn and I threw the tail end out and almost hit a curb ><
Wow, you're really on top of this Brad. Pretty soon your 08 will be more hooked up than the Focus Sport STC car. Just make sure too keep posting up pics because I do soooo enjoy looking at your FoFo's progress. Good luck with all your future mods.[thumb]
Thank you gentleman, I'm having a blast with my Focus and with all of you here on FF. I've had the pleasure of meeting some of you personally and to date there hasn't been a jerk in the lot. Well, except for maybe whoever put the cucumber juice in my drink at our G2G - but hey that's in another thread somewhere.
My new Steeda Black Chrome-moly Tubular Strut Tower Brace (that's a mouth full, gotta love cut and paste) is due to arrive tomorrow and I'll of course post some pics of that too.
I was actually surprised by the beefiness of the FocusSport rear stress bar. For some reason I was expecting a little smaller diameter, in this case you can't deny that bigger is better. [cool]
Oh and I don't need to forget to tighten the bar to hit a curb. I made a last second decision to turn onto this street last week and smacked the most ragged curb, at least I think it was a curb - didn't go back and look, and I actually ripped a hole in the sidewall of one of my brand new (6k miles) Pirelli tire - no joke. [slap] On the bright side, I now know for sure that my "low tire pressure" sensors work just fine. [giggle]
After a few days of driving around with this, yep it definitely helped. I've heard others complain that the H&R coilovers ride harsh. While it never was bone shattering but true not the smoothest ride in town. The rear stress bar, and I wasn't expecting this at all, actually did take the harness out of the ride.
I've also installed a front tower brace since the rear bar, but we (my wife and I) noticed the difference as soon as the rear bar was installed.
