Just like any other strut bar, makes the front "feel" a little more together if that makes sence.

A mate of mine had a cheapo ebay special front strut brace, and when he swapped out for the Neuspeed we both noticed a difference straight away, though it wasn't as big a difference as I expected.

dunno about the ebay specials myself. the dc ones for the lude are crap. seeing how a new neuspeed one averages around $150, i'd say just skip the rest of the cheapies and get it.

poohbear will become famous soon enoughpoohbear will become famous soon enough
I have a neuspeed strut bar on mine... It is what it is... It does what its designed to do, and that's hold the body where its supposed to be under hard turning.... Will others do the same? Probably... Will others be as durable as the neuspeed? Maybe... Will you be happy with your purchase? Probably...
The nice thing about the nespeed is that its desinged to fit your car. Adjustables are just that adjustables.. Mass produced and interchangable... of course the nuespeed will be better then those.... Are there other strut bars available as good as neuspeed and less expensive? Definitly.... But u pay for the name...
Buying this strut bar is a one shot deal... You buy it it fits it works how u want it to....
Other strut bars may not provide the same thing at a lower price...
Just my 2 cents

I'm thinking about buy from summitracing.com. You can return within 90 days. So 98BB6SH, does it fit on perfectly and you don't have to try to get it fit or move other parts trying to fit it? Is Front Upper Tie-Bars the same as strut bars?
How would u guys compare neuspeed from tanabe, which is around >$100.

Re: Neuspeed Strut Bar

tie bars are the bars for the underneath of a car the strut bars are the engine and the one in the trunk. neuspeed kills all on the front strut bar.and Explicit kills all in the rear strut bar.

Can you check that link? I knew that the tie bar are under the car. It's so confusing that they didn't have a picture, but the description sounds like a strut bar.

Those are expensive. The total was $160.97. I bought a black powercoated (not chrome) for $121 ($109 + $11 shipping)

I hope there is no difference.

Re: Neuspeed Strut Bar

I'm thinking about picking one of these up because one of the brackets for my Megan bar is almost broken off and a local shop has them stocked for $120 bucks. Is it a 4pt bar for the 4th gen or just a 2pt?
