Thanks goes out to Leni @ Metro Motorsports for locating me a BeatRush rear strut bar in only a few days, hahhaa i was in need of a JDM parts fix......... Bad.... =D>

Anyhow, thanks Leni, got the bar in the mail today, its already installed!! ill give it a good workout at the next autoX. :twisted:



Anyone on this forum rock'n this bar, or maybe the Garage Ohno Version, or other styles?

BTW Dan, i need another alignment please, like yesterday!! :shock: AutoX is Dec 2nd, can you check the schedule to see if you can work in the hoopty?

Joe @ R-Speed i need a hook up brutha, i sent you the email bro, i need this other part BAD. [-o<

I have the Moss rear bar. No real difference in feel. I suspect a rollbar would have more of an impact. Still, anthing to stiffen that end up. Looks great!

yeah Phat, I got the garage ohno rear stb. Got it from Jimmy for a great price. Didn't really feel anything either, but its a lil trunk bling since my engine bay has none..yet.haha.

mine looks similar. I'll try to get a shot when I can. Been meaning to send Jimmy some pics of it too. Thanks Jimmy!

Have not had a chance to drive it yet, i need to check those bolts again today while im sober, Tim Allen and Freedomgli came over last night and I got distracted BSing about Road&Ster and drank'n Sapporo Black Label & Kirin Ichiban :shock:

I dont think i will feel too much difference only because i already have the thick 1.75" diam HardDog HardCore bar installed already. (Notice in the picture i posted, you can see part of it in the corner) :wink: But im sure on a bone stock car it would help tighten the rear end up, maybe more so if you box in the suspension with the lower bar too (the base models did not come with those)

Looks ok, but I think there's no use whatsoever especially if you have a roll bar, just extra weight.
Yeah i have a rollbar w/harness bar, and the factory rear parcel brace, so i wont notice much, but as for weight? haha i think the bolts and brackets are the heaviest parts, the bar is featherweight, im sure it is under 0.5lb, maybe less, i should have weighed it on my postal scale, i forgot #-o

maybe someone repainted the car before you owned it? but they all came painted from the factory.
