Front and Rear Strut Tower Bar
Are there any strut tower bars that don't cost as much as the symms bars. And has anyone tried a strut tower bar in the rear or front of their 96-99GT Legacy wgn - any significant handling differences?

I have a 99GT Sedan & have the front Strut brace from JC Sports. ($99) - you probably won't ever notice a "major" difference w/the strut brace. There is an ever so slight change in the way the car handles. When you've done all the mods necessary for suspension, etc. - that's when you get a great overall effect. I have yet to find an affordable rear strut brace - not too high on my list of things for the car anyway....
I have the sway bar, strut brace, and springs - all together a great package. Next up - struts...!!

I don't remember off hand if they carry a rear bar, but Primitive Enterprises has a front bar for $239. Looks pretty stout in the picture on their website (see the links section for their URL). The picture just says Impreza, as I recall, but if you go the pricing page it lists a bar for the Legacy too.
Other than that I think the JC Sports one is the only other one I know of for less than the SYMS. Challenger Deep carries one for $284 (front), which I think is about what the SYMS runs.
Good luck with your search. By the way, I don't have a brace yet, front or rear, so I can't say anything about their usefulness.
