Was simple to install, worked just as good as I had anticipated. Even had new hardware! Highly recommend
Installation of this strut bar couldn't be easier. Literally four bolts, slide it under the wiper cowl and that's it. I purchased this at the same time as the rear X-brace, but installed a day apart so I could make an objective observation on it's effect. I haven't yet had an opportunity to test on track, but on street and twisties the effect is surprisingly pronounced. Initial turn in and steering response feel more direct and immediate. This brace took a bit of "numbness" out of the steering on-center and really helped things out. Combined with the rear X-brace, this is a great combination. My only regret is that I haven't done this sooner!
My Alltrack has a stock suspension so I wanted to tighten things up a bit. Between this STB and a RSB I accomplished that. Install was super easy, took maybe 20 minutes. Noticed a big difference in cornering. Definitely a good purchase.
Front strut brace really made the front end fee a lot more planted. Reduced front end push and helped give better turn-in. Well worth it, and customer service is top notch! Would highly recommend their products!
Thanks for your feedback John :-)
