Upper Strut bar

Hey everyone. I been looking at Neuspeed's front upper strut bar for along time. I just never got it. Well now that I'm getting this good deal on a Tanabe rear upper strut bar I was going to just go ahead and get the front one right away to since the guy can give me a good package deal. But then I thought about how I liked the design of the Neuspeed front upper bar. So now I'm wondering should I just go full Tanabe or should I grab the Neuspeed front bar? B/c of how the Neuspeed is designed and since it's one piece versus something adjustable like Tanabe's would it be a better product?

opinions please

Ok I answered my own question. a 4pt tower strut bar is superior to any adjustable (2point) strut bar. Just makes more sense that it would be stronger. Does Neuspeed make a rear upper strut bar for the 4th gen? I didn;t think they did. So if they don't does any other company out there make and solid rear tower strut bar for the 4th gen?

I never did much research when I first got my first set of tower strut bars. I went with a focuz adjustable front bar (I got it from a shop when I first got into the import scene like 5 years ago. For all I know it was prolly a Ebayer) and a Cusco adjustable 2 pt rear and I did notice a diffrent.

Since I'm going gunho on the suspension this time I just want to get some really nice parts. I'm sure some of you guys will say go with the adjustable 2 pts there pretty much the same. B/c well hell even I think they were good but I never personally got to compare them to a 4pt like Neuspeeds.

Also Neuspeeds doesn't look like it connects to the strut tower like others? It looks like it seures onto the Upper control arm/camber bolts. Why is this? Better thought out design to improve handling?

Current Suspension set up right now
KYB AGX's (which i need to find out what i should set them to to break them in, then DD and track day. 4ways)
Eibach Sportlines
Ingalls Camber
Dc lower tie bar (looks like it's just a show piece)
EMRacing titanium Cpillar bar
Aerospeed floor bar
going with some Tanabe sway bars and a Tanabe 2pt lower front tie after strut bar set up, but that's another post :)

note* i have not drove the car since 99% of the new suspension parts were put on so i dont know how it handles right now. I'm hoping good. I did drive with the Eibach Sportlines and it was a good ride. Not bumpy at all. Nice n stiff.

Cool.

...do you really want to be that stiff with a 4 pt strut bar?

Neuspeed made them for Accords, the 3 point strut bar, perhaps for the Prelude too?

Tanabe sway bar!!?! sikness

Yea my ludes going to be a street/track car besides being a summer DD so I wanted to really have a good suspension setup. Maybe I'm going a little bit crazy for straight line driving but I'm thinking having a tight suspension should get me better launches and help keep the Falken Azenis stuck to the ground resulting in better quarter mile times
