Icon14 Megan Racing Front Upper Strut Tower Bar

I picked the polished color I think they come in red, blue, black and polished aluminum.

This bar is made of billet aluminum and looks great.
One bad point they needed a little bit of fabrication to install
For the passenger's side strut tower mount I had to shave off about 1/8 " to 1/4 " of the mount so it would fit flush on top of the strut mounting plate.

On the Driver's side I had to cut a triangle shape piece out of the mounting bracket and grind it down to allow space for the ABS brake lines without having to re route them. Minor stuff and still has the structual integrity.

All in all I would buy them again, I think they make one for the rear upper and lower as well. Found them on a eBay Store I think I paid $45 for it. By far I would pair these up to AEM, and all the popular aftermarket brands.

No fabrication was needed for my Megan front, but my rear upper doesn't fit. I will have to cut a significant amount away for it to fit (about 1/3 of the O-ring so that it resembles the front C-ring).

I Just Purchased Front Upper And Rear Upper Megan Strut Tower Bars And The Rear Lower Tie Bar. I've Seen A Big Difference In Cornering. I Agree That They Are Well Worth The Money. I Paid $130 Shipped For All Three. I Highly Recommend. I Had Dc Bars In My Civic. They're Both Billet Alluminum So It's All The Same ****. Def Buy These Over The Pricer Ones - You End Up Paying For The Name

Re: Megan Racing Front Upper Strut Tower Bar

I have one on my front and I am planning on getting a matching one for the rear. I am very satisfied.

What's the point of having strut towers?

I have rear lower and upper and just got a front upper strut tower bar all from megan. Look great and provide really good structural rigidity. Dramatically stabilizes cornering.

Front towers help reduce body roll meaning more traction to your front wheels around cornering. Look up vehicle dynamics in wiki. Give yourself a good amount of time to soak it in.

If it's a DD, strut bar is only good for looks and will just add weight to the car. I mean, you're not gonna drive like a maniac on public roads. You only feel them works when turning at least at 30mph and up, unless you occasionally go circuit or auto cross races for fun. Just my 2 cents.

Re: Megan Racing Front Upper Strut Tower Bar

I've heard the Front strut bar helps with handling but the rear actually caused the vehicle to break traction faster. Any thoughts?
