Default front and rear strut bars on my rs (yay)

So yea I bought a set of strut bars for my 01 rs off ebay. Front one took 20 minutes to put on (the bolts were rusted). back one....different story. What a pain in the ass that thing was.

ok so here we go. Hopefully they make a difference...





edit more pics




intake and exhaust are next....

ill post tmrw and say if it made a difference or not. I am going to engage in some....spirited driving

ok just took a very long drive out in the rain around some curvy roads. Definetly can feel a difference in the steering. Car feels more connected to the road. Well worth the 40 dollars .

yeah they were really cheap thats why I jumped on them. no instructions but it isnt that hard to figure out...just time consuming (for the rear anyway) lol

oh and make sure you use a torque wrench to re-tighten all the bolts
