Front strut tower brace

Cheapest I've found it so far is $329. I also see there's a Subaru trailer hitch and wiring listed for the Crosstrek. Seems like that should work on the Impreza too.


Nameless has one for our vehicles for $179+shipping. I just put it on yesterday and feels and the front end feels a little more solid, more like one piece since the load is now being shared by both struts. I may still be under the placebo spell though but Iíll see after a couple of weeks or so how I feel about it.

Installed my Cusco strut bar today. Could definitely tell a difference when pushing it to extreme limits. I have a sharp exit I take every day at 20mph over the advised speed. Didn't feel the roll or need to adjust and or brake. Held solid through the curve. Definitely makes it more fun to drive.

Yes, but did you install a strain gauge on it to verify this?? We need absolute proof!!


Lol


Looks good on there.
