Default GTSpec Front Strut Tower Bar for '08-12 WRX/STI

$90 + shipping (or local meetup/pickup for MD/DC/No.VA)

Online retail price is $160+.

I've had it on my '11 WRX for approximately 10k miles, and it works great. There are a couple minor scratches here and there (my PW TMIC rubbed it on the under side during removals/re-installs), but nothing major.

Note: The steel end plates that bolt to the strut towers, which are normally blue (see link), have been painted black with a high-quality engine enamel. It looks great, especially if you like GTSpec, but don't really like the multi-colored blue/green that they used.

The GTSpec Front Strut Bar for the 2008+ GR series Subaru Impreza. Extremely light yet incredibly durable, GTSPEC's newly designed Type-D Aluminum Strut Tower Bar weighs in at a scant 5.5 pounds, yet exceeds the demands of even the most discriminating consumer. Constructed with hollow-quad-wall design, the Military-Grade 6063 Aluminum Strut Bars provide increased rigidity and improved handling without adding unnecessary weight to the front of the vehicle and incorporates steel end plates. Installation is straight-forward and can be done with the use of basic hand tools.
