Update. Since buying the xbrace I have changed from BC coilovers to tokico d spec. The BC coilovers adjustment extenders do not fit but the tokico do fit! Useful info for anyone considering buying

Subscribed.

Sounds like a great investment. I'm just too cheap to spend the $450..

Great!
It's installed inside and there really isn't anything to wear out.
Still helps hold those corners.

Mine is still installed and doing great, I still go on three wheels when entering parking lots.

Great, noticeable upgrade.

Does anyone have any feedback with this during snow cross or driving in the snow?

I think I've driven through all of the seasons and different terrains. Holds up very nicely. However, during a drive with bald tires and a newly equipped LSD, the car spun side ways, which probably didn't have anything to do with the X brace though. Overall, the stability has been a great and safe. Body roll is almost to a point where its none existent.

I just purchased this.. I just got a bunch of stuff for my rear end.. MSI rear trailing arms with 2" correction, front and rear trailing arm bushings. lateral link bushings, and gtspec diff mount replacement. After seeing this video:
of all the movement in the trunk I have had too many nightmares and have decided to make the 450 plunge to sure things up..

I installed this along with coilovers, group n top hats, 22mm f/r sways, end links and ALK. Car handles flat around the corners beautifully. Xbrace installed first and noticed a huge improvement in the rear and overall handling with my old clunky suspension. Upgrade is A+

I didn't feel any real difference in my car.
However I have not tracked it since the install, possibly this is why.

I was impressed with the product build quality.
It was a PITA to install and I had to open up the holes in the brace to get everything to line up (not the end of the world).

Perhaps this isn't for everyone, I'd recommend the fender braces as they made a much more noticeable improvement.

How did I not see this until now? Track it. Heck, autocross it. Then unhook the lower plate and make another run. Let us know what you think.

I was always interested in this but the price is steep to me... I have the cusco rear strut bar with triangle. Looks good but takes up space in the trunk... not that the trunk is used. I'm wondering how much I would notice this.

All rear end bushings are TIC/race. All group n motor/trans/pitch stop mounts and spring hats. RCE yellow springs...etc. Car is super stiff so I'm not sure if this would even make a difference. Car isn't tracked and is more of a garage queen that gets taken out when weather is nice every other month..lol

I had both setups and there was no difference going from the Cusco to the x-brace.

Does TIC still make this x-brace? I can't find it on their website for 2004-2005 WRX or STi.
Maybe it's an issue with the mobile version?
