Default regarding irvine's rear strut bars for bg5 wagons...

is ne1 else out there using one? i would like to use one (if i had a front one too that is), but i am concerning about it getting in the way of cargo. having not seen one, is there some sort of way where the crossbar can be quickly removed for more storage space?

I think you can use butterfly nuts to attach it so that you can unscrew them without using any tools for when you need the cargo space back.

hey i was thinking about wingnuts too... but i was uncertain about this because i thought it had to be rigidly torqued down to the strut towers in order to be effective?

if the bar for the wagon is similar to the sedan version, then there are 2 bolts that hold the middle bar to the strut tower top mounts. you could undo the 2 bolts in maybe a minute with a wrench and rachet.

Stole this from cobb tuning's web site-

For the Sedan models, the bar runs through the trunk space right behind
the rear seats and a few inches below the rear deck lid. For the
Wagons, the bar runs across the rear cargo area directly behind the rear
seats. Simply remove the two bolts that hold the bar in place if you ever
need to temporarily reclaim the extra trunk/cargo space.

They have rear wagon bars for only $180, not sure what manufacturer.

I've used the SYMS bar. Carry two 12mm wrenches and it takes a minute to remove. I wouldn't recommend thumb nuts because it really does need to be tightly bolted in place to be effective as a strut bar. Otherwise it's just a waste and you shouldn't even bother...
