I assume all mounting hardware is included?

Now let me ask from a functional standpoint....obviously it tightens everything up but will I experience creaking sounds...like sway bar bushings? How much improvement in handling is there? How will it affect the ride? Thanks

The lower arm bar doesn't come with mounting hardware. They just bolt right on by using the stock bolts.
You will not hear any creaking noise at all. Because, the lower arm bar doesn't move at all. it's just bolt right on to the X-member to reduces chassis flexing.

Anti-Lift Kit. Alot of other vendors sell these. Whiteline and Perrin make a kit.

Product description and pic from MastroWRX's site, hope he doesn't mind:

Increases castor for sharper turning ability. Reduces understeer by reducing front end lift under hard acceleration by changing effective roll centre of front suspension geometry of car. Improves caster allowing more negative camber on turns.

Thanks...
The lower arm bar should fit even with the alk. Because, the lower arm bar is goes to the X-member, not to the contronl arm. I hope these helps

It will fit with the ALK but you need to shim the bolts so it fits correctly. If you want to reattach the front subframe with the ALK installed you have to lower it using shims. This makes the bar not fit as is.

dwx: Thanks for your info.

Is there anyone who has alk can take some picture on the alk attachment points and post it here? I would like to making sure if the lower bar will fit with alk or not.
I will appreciate it.

Our bar has similar design as the Cusco. The bar is made of lightweight aluminum and it's only 3lbs. The fitment is perfect.

Check this out. This is the actual product

No, it's very strong.
Maybe you can PM "Bankie" He order one from us. We have shipped his order last week. I think he should get it.

Yeah, I found it on my porch last Friday and installed it that night. It's very rigid, I tried but could not flex it with my hands. It's extremely light, I could not believe how light the package was. Fitment was perfect as EAuto has said. Mine had a little paint chip on it when I took it out of the box but it's not like anyone will see it under the car and it's aluminum so it won't rust.

Installation was not hard but I had to use a 3foot metal pipe as a breaker bar to get the two rear bolts out. IIRC, you'll need a 17mm or 18mm socket and a 20mm socket. A 6" extension would help tremendously but I managed without one.

It does stiffen the front up nicely. It's definitely worth it for $65.
