Question Rear low tiebar

I think thats what its called. Its the one that bolts right next to the rear differential. Anywayz does anyone have this and is it really worth it? I'm also thinking of getting a swaybar, endlinks, and a rear strut bar. (those will come later when the money comes) So is it really worth the $$ go get the tiebar? I think its around $50-60, cheaper than a swaybar or a strut bar. Should I go ahead n get it first or save up and get the others?

Someone here has it, I think they said it doesn't do much, especially compared to the rear strut tower brace.

So the bar doesn't make (or seem like) the back stiffer? So now would a strut bar work better to make the car stiffer back there? Looks like I'm gonna have 2 dish out more money. oh wells... thats gonna take some time

The weak section of the rear end is between the strut towers because there's a big gaping hole in the structure near where the rear wheels are acting on. Underneath, where the lower brace would go, the chassis is already pretty solid.

Yep, no difference felt here with the lower tie bar. The rear strut tower bar on the other hand did make a difference. The rear feels tighter and doesn't seem to flex as much as stock. Save up some more cash and go for that instead.

I believe that anything that will increase stiffness in the rear of the RS is beneficial to getting the a$$ around. I will be more than happy to bolt on a nice blue Cusco rear tie bar for only $50.
