Post Cusco Rear Lower Arm Bar ...anyone have experience with this?

Thanks to everyone in the NESIC who replied to this, but I wanted to get mroe responses on this. Does anyone have one? Does it work? What does it do?

Found this on teagues site. Here is the description:
Cusco Rear Lower Arm Bar for Impreza, Legacy and Forester. Stabilizes the rear cross member. Mounts in existing holes in the rear cross member

So what does it do? and is it worth it? I have no mods on my car except a bottomless airbox which I only run in the winter considering im not too lazt to put it in...Just looking for something cheap and this is. Also considering a 18mm sway bar but thats a different issue to its self.

I look at it this way. It is not a part that will dramatically imporve your car's handling characteristics. It definetely makes the body more solid to some degree. So you add that lower rear arm bar, lower front arm bar, strut towers bars, ect and you make you car more rigit and stiff and thats what you really want to do. Plus, I think you did mention that it is ... CUSCO!!! Also, Sev would say that it is blue and that it adds about 10hp to the wheels due to that fact.

OK, I have what looks to be a huge really thick sway bar on the front (i would say around 18-20 mm) and that was stock. It looks to be twice as thick as the 13 mm in the rear as of now. So let me get this straight....lower arm bar+18mm rear sway bar=good car?

any suspension mod + any suspension mod = better handling car. How much better? Just better. :P

Thumbs up

Exactly right, there is no one silver bullet mod. It's the sum of the parts. The fun part is putting it all together. For some of us anyway
