All you guys with sway bars will you PLEASE take pics the post them. I am thinking about making some of my own and I would like to see how it connects to the strut, I also want to know if they are hollow or solid.

Thanks

Ok maybe I am thinkoing of the wrong thing. I am thinking of the thing under the hood and in the trunk, they run from the top of one strut to another. You have to buy them aftermarket.

Thanks

See my avatar for what a REAL strut tower brace looks like. This was on my pro rally car and is not available for a Focus. It does give you and idea of what a real one look like versus the "toys" that are available for a Focus. Yes, I have a "toy" bar on my ZX3 and installed it when we were rallycrossing the car.

I should be cautious using the term "toy" because they can help an older car where the chassis has loosened up and for things like autocross, the track, and rallycross. A straight bar (hard if not impossible to install on a Focus without relocating or redesigning some components in the engine compartment) is far better from a structural standpoint than a typical aftermarket one with its kinks and curves.
