well u know what i mean - however it is suprisingly good. It feels more stable than b4 the brace. It doesnt affect normal driving conditions that much but coupled with a tower bar, it give much better turning characteristics. Less body rool and less understeer from personal experience.

Of course this could just be me justifying the cost of the stuff

my 2cents

thanks for scrolling thru

no modding required - just use the spacers since it actually rubs on something. Makes the car sound like its got a super load exhaust

The part he's talking about is actually the Undercar Brace. Very nice piece, espically if you can find it used. I'm not sure i can justify the $200 brand new price tag, but i got my used one for $69 from someone local and i love the thing. The nose of the car definitely feels like it flexes up and down and twists less, espically when going over gutters, dips, or speedbumps.
