Question Differences between strut tower braces?

I'm thinking about buying front and rear strut tower braces for my BG Legacy L wagon - I saw the sale SPO Motorsports is having on the SYMS braces - looks like a pretty good deal. My question is, are there differences in performance between all the different brands of strut tower braces, or do they all do exactly the same thing? I hear one front braces from an Impreza also work and are cheaper? Anyone have any sources for that?

Anyone have any experience ordering from SPO? Their website doesn't even indicate where they are located.

Thanks everyone!

I've ordered from SPO before. Service was good, but that was back when Scott Orem owned the company. SPO is somewhere in Oregon.

As long as the bar is rigid enough, it should function the same.

Far as I've seen the differences are in fit and finish for the most part. The better manufacturers seem to use higher quality materials and hardware. I have a Cusco (purchased used) on front and a Syms on the rear, both quality pieces. I honestly noticed a bigger difference with the front, seeming to pull the car together for a more solid, rattle/shake-free feeling, and a little less slop on initial steering input. Seems like I've had more occasions to use the car to haul stuff since putting in the rear bar too! Murphy's Law I guess!
